Particularly noteworthy (e.g. very deadly or very costly) hurricane names are retired. Prior to 1979 some names were just dropped and replaced. Presently, names are picked by a committee of the World Meteorological Organization. Names are subject to change due to retirements and changes however we update as needed and as soon as we are aware of changes.

The letters Q, U, X, Y and Z are not used
