Tropical Cyclones are classified as Tropical Storms and given names when wind speeds reach  39 miles per hour.

Tropical Storms become Hurricanes when wind speeds reach  74 miles per hour.

The purpose of naming storms is for identification during the season.   *The names of particularly strong and destructive storms are retired to avoid confusion in future years with storms having the same name.   If all 21 names are assigned before the season ends and additional names are needed, the Greek Alphabet will be used:  Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta, Epsilon, Zeta, Eta, Theta, Iota, Kappa, Lambda.
