Why all the hurricane and tornadoes are named after women?

Report as

Not all hurricanes are named after women. And they don't name tornadoes. Would you like me to get the list of all hurricanes' names?

They don't name tornadoes, hurricanes have been named since the 1950s, 1979 was when they first started using male names.

Due to your question the weather service changed it to both girls' and boys' names a while back for hurricanes.

The practice of naming hurricanes after women began in the early 20th century. It was changed a few years ago to alternate men''s and women's names.

They are named after the person as an honour for their research work. So man or women, its good, isn't it?
