MANILA, Philippines— The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration has released the list of names of tropical storm for 2014.

According to Pagasa, the 2014 list duplicated the items in 2010.


Among the interesting names that would be used are “Waldo,” “Mario” and “Venus.”

Pagasa uses a four-year rotation which uses a list of 25 names every four years which began in 2001 when the bureau used nicknames for typhoons instead of the clichéd names ending in “ing.”


Joining the three are Agaton, Basyang, Caloy, Domeng, Ester, Florita, Glenda, Henry, Inday, Juan, Katring, Luis, Neneng, Ompong, Paeng, Queenie, Ruby, Seniang, Tomas, Usman, Yayang and Zeny.
