Who is picking these names? I know some official meteorological people. Why hermine and Igor, etc? This is the western hemishere. How about mark, bob, kathy, sarah, even Jorge, or Maria.

I agree, some of the names picked are unusual. Here is an explanation of how names for hurricanes get chosen.

I'm glad these hurricanes are staying mostly out to sea. Earl was enough for the season.
