One name from the Central Pacific list was used - Nele. It was the first usage for this name. One storm, Typhoon Skip, formed in the central Pacific but did not receive a name until it reached the west Pacific, therefore only Nele was used from the central Pacific list.

Later during the 80's, the added names were made a permanent part of the Eastern Pacific lists, and other names were added for even-numbered years.

Famous quotes containing the words names and/or storm:

    The pangs of conscience, where are the pangs of conscience? Orestes and Clytemnestra, Reinhold doesn’t even know the names of those fine folk. He simply hopes, heartily and sincerely, that Franz is dead as a doornail and won’t be found.
    Alfred Döblin (1878–1957)

    Thee for my recitative,
    Thee in the driving storm even as now, the snow, the winter-day
    Thee in thy panoply, thy measur’d dual throbbing and thy beat
    Thy black cylindric body, golden brass and silvery steel,
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
