curious meterologist

storms..the latest going on, Ida, which is one of my favorite names of all time, it got me thinking who comes up with these names? Ida is such an uncommon name, i secretly hate it being blasted over the airwaves...( i was saving it for a potential name for my child one day!)
so i did a little research..
*there are six lists of names that get repeated every year
*if a storm is damaging then that name is retired ..katrina(2005), andrew(1992)
and Fifi (1974)
* the lists have been generated by the National Hurricane Center since 1953
* lists alternate between male and female
*some other names on this years list are: Claudette, Joaquin, Wanda, Victor
