Hurricane Storm Names

Are Storm Names Prophetic?

The following is a list of the names that being used for the Atlantic Coast (see http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/aboutnames.shtml) and the meanings of those names. Some name meanings may vary in meaning according to the book you look it up in, but these are pretty basic meanings that I found for each. If you feel that the storms and their name meanings are a sign of what is in store, this may be helpful to you. Lists are recycled every six years.

I listed whatever the factual information was regarding each name. In no way do I suggest that you should pursue looking up information regarding false gods because of Dennis (from 2005 list) being a derivative of that name. Seek the Lord, The Word of God, and ask the Holy Spirit for revelation concerning it.

Interestingly, while scanning the lists for other areas, I discovered that in the Eastern North Pacific "Israel replaced Ismael in 2001." When looking up the meanings of the names, prophetically, it could read like this:

"Israel (Ruling with God) replaced Ismael (God listens) in 2001."

(NOTE: Depending on the source you go to for name meanings, what you read could be different from the items listed below. I chose to obtain as many of the name meanings below from Christian sources as I could.)
