I'd suggest we turn to just using numbers to track these things. There's no real need to use names. Numbers not only suffice, they are in infinite supply.

The story didn't explain how they name the storms outside of the hurricane season and a quick Google doesn't really turn up much. They do get named, and they are very rare, but I'll be damned if I can find how. I'll just add it to the long list of stoopid shiat to look up when bored.

Do you mean storms that form outside of the "official" season? For instance, a storm that forms in May or December in the Atlantic? They get named the same way as other storms (though I'm not sure whether they use the calendar year to "turn over" to the next list or whether they consider, say, the spring equinox as the split point, which would make more sense).  The defined "official" season boundaries are a little arbitrary.

Can't read the article because I don't have a subscription and turn off ad-blocker does nothing.

Last time this has happened they start using the Greek alphabet, in 2005 they made it to Zeta which is the 6 letter, there was a total of 28 named storms that year.

We're going about this all wrong. Personally I prefer the term "typhoon". We've run out of hurricanes so we now have typhoons. Egads, we're being attacked by the RAF!
