The Philippines is battered by an average of 20 tropical cyclones yearly and to establish easier recall, state weather bureau PAGASA gives storms Filipino-sounding names.

The names, curated alphabetically, are reused every four years. This means that names that will be used this 2021 will be repeated in 2025, 2029, and 2033.

Names of storms that leave too much destruction in their wake however are "retired" and replaced with new ones from PAGASA's list of names.
