Lists of tropical cyclone names

Due to their long-term persistence, and the need for a unique identifier in issuing forecasts and warnings, tropical cyclones and subtropical cyclones are given names according to policy. The names generally refer to animals, flowers, astrological signs, and a few personal names. The following are lists from which these tropical and subtropical cyclone names are derived.

The Regional Specialized Meteorological Centre in Tokyo, Japan, assigns names to tropical cyclones when they are judged to reach tropical storm strength. Names are contributed by members of the ESCAP/WMO Typhoon Committee. Each of the 14 nations or territories submitted 10 names, which are used in alphabetical order, by the English name of the country. The names are used sequentially without regard to year.
