Because the other half of them have male names.

There is a predetermined list of storm names per region. The names go alphabetically, and alternate between male and female names. Thus exactly 50% of storms have female names.

If -- this is a big if -- more actual hurricanes recently have had female names, this is merely coincidence.

The list rotates and is recycled every six years. For example, the 2012 list will be re-used in 2018.

Will we see another Hurricane Sandy then? No, probably not. When a storm gains too much significance, the name is retired. This is why Katrina doesn't appear on the list.

Herein Philippines super typhoon yolanda that killed almost 10,000 aside from more than 1,200 missing still following the name of woman.

After yolanda another typhoon after the name of woman..
I just came into my mind why always naming after the woman because of their character.
They are very unpredictable unlike men.
Typhoon too is unpredictable that sometimes people died because of unptedictable movement.
