The National Weather Service's Hurricane Center selects the names for each
season's storms. But not all of the proposed names make the cut. Frankly, the
whole "Let's name this terrible storm" thing seems kind of stupid, especially if
they wind up using your name. Remember when everyone thought the name Katrina
was cute and sexy? Plus you have to consider a hurricane name that will raise
alarm, but not freak everyone out. Plus, it can't be too goofy (Hence, "Goofy"
never being picked) so that people will merely laugh when told the hurricane's
a'comin'! For example, these rejected names:
April, May or June
Yoda (or any "Star Wars"-based name.
Who, What or I Don't Know
But the question remains, "Why don't they name tornados?"
