Hurricane names for the upcoming season are agreed upon at international meetings of the World Meteorological Organization. The names are male or female names starting with each letter of the alphabet except Q, U, X, Y, and Z, which are excluded due to a scarcity of names starting with those letters. Names of especially deadly hurricanes are usually retired.
Naming hurricanes began hundreds of years ago, but the US weather service officially created an alphabetic naming system in 1953. The names range from A to W and are agreed upon by the World Meteorological Organization’s participant nations.
