It's a poll of over 10,000 people each year in each country, the idea being that if they're named it is easier to talk about and give warnings, not sure who they are or how they are chosen though. The most popular are then used, all letters apart from Q, X, Y and Z, possibly K as well and it always alternates between male and female for each letter. It doesn't start in January, from memory it's November as that is the start of storm season. They have problems in the states as people don't take the female named storms that seriously and don't heed warnings, so more people get injured or killed during them

Someone told me the other day you don't have to worry about the male named storms, they generally don't last long.

Lynibis But the biggest problem with the female ones is they arrive quietly then act wildly, make you wet and when they eventually leave take your house and car with them.
