Hurricane season officially starts on Friday, June 1st and runs all the way until Friday, November 30th. According to a report by The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration this season we are expecting up to 9 hurricanes and 10-16 tropical storms.

Have you ever wonder how they come up with such weird (or simple) names for hurricanes? Well, it turns out that the "they" are actually the World Meteorology Organization and NOT the National Weather Service or NOAA. The names actually run on a strict rotation and are recycled. Names do get retired though, in the case of major devastation, like Hurricane Sandy.

Without further ado, here are the names of all of the future hurricanes this season:

Alberto (currently active near Florida panhandle)
Beryl
Chris
Debby
Ernesto
Florence
Gordon
Helene
Isaac
Joyce
Kirk
Leslie
Michael
Nadine
Oscar
Patty
Rafael
Sara
Tony
Valerie
William

According to the National Hurricane Center, "In the event that more than twenty-one named tropical cyclones occur in the Atlantic basin in a season, additional storms will take names from the Greek alphabet."

So here is my question, if you could name a hurricane? What would the name be?
