List of Names for Philippine Tropical Cyclones

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration uses its own naming scheme for tropical cyclones in their area of responsibility. PAGASA assigns names to tropical depressions that form within their area of responsibility and any tropical cyclone that might move into their area of responsibility. Should the list of names for a given year prove to be insufficient, names are taken from an auxiliary list, the first 10 of which are published each year before the season starts.

The first tropical cyclone of the year starts with the name beginning in letter A as in AURING under column 1 for 2005 and so on down the list as one disturbance succeeds another.  The 5th year (2006) will bring us back to column 1 of AURING.  In the event that the number of tropical cyclones within the year exceeds 25, an auxiliary list is used, the first ten of which are listed under each column.
