Names with an asterisk (*) are marked for replacement
Three lists of names are used, one for each of the three Australian Tropical Cyclone Warning Centres (TCWC) in Perth, Darwin and Brisbane. The name of a new tropical cyclone is usually selected from the list of names of the TCWC responsible for the area in which it first became a cyclone.  If a cyclone moves into another TCWC's area of responsibility, its name is retained.  Similarly, if a named cyclone moves into the Australian region from another country's zone of responsibility, the name assigned by that other country will be retained.
