2012 Atlantic Hurricane Names | 2012 Atlantic Tropical Cyclone Reports

Hurricanes are named alphabetically from a predetermined list beginning the letter “A” through “W”, excluding names that begin with “Q” or “U.”

A storm is first named by the National Hurricane Center when the system becomes a tropical storm and the name remains as it develops into a hurricane or until it dissipates.

The most devastating hurricane names are retired and another name replaces it.
