A-Z Baby names

Hurricane names for boys and girls


When it comes to give the baby a name that is to be born, all the resources are valid. The more names parents know, the more likely they are to find the ideal name for their little one.

Some parents choose to give the names of dear relatives or friends, and others prefer rare or very exotic names. Thinking about it, Guiainfantil.com, through the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), has collected the names of hurricanes for the year 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. And here you have the result. We hope it helps you know what to call your baby!

Surely, you have ever wondered why names of people, men and women, are put on hurricanes, cyclones or tropical storms. Meteorologists began naming hurricanes to facilitate communication between them and the general public. Before, for centuries, they were baptized with the name of the saint of the day that affected the area, as an example, Santa Ana and San Felipe (Puerto Rico).

Every year, it prepares a list of names for the upcoming hurricane season. The list contains a name for each letter of the alphabet (the letters Q, U, X, Y, Z are not included because few names begin with those letters). These lists are repeated every six years, and the names are changed when the name of a hurricane has been removed.

The names of very destructive hurricanes are withdrawn, remaining in the historical records and are replaced by others that begin with the same letter.

Hurricane, typhoon and cyclone are the same, the difference is where they occur. A hurricane is the last stage of a tropical cyclone and according to the Saffir-Simpson scale they can be classified into five categories, according to the speed of their winds. Keep in mind that the list of names varies according to the area of ​​the world in which these phenomena take place. Take, for example, the Atlantic.
