NEW DELHI: Cyclone

Tauktae

on Sunday intensified into a "very severe cyclonic storm" over Eastcentral Arabian Sea, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said. It is very likely to intensify further during the next 12 hours, and reach the coast of Gujarat on May 17.
As a precautionary measure, rescue teams have been deployed in six states -- Kerala, Karnataka,

Maharashtra

, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, and Goa -- which would likely be in direct line of threat of the cyclone.
Cyclone Tauktae : Live updates
While the internet may be abuzz with notes of caution, it also made many realise that a lot goes in a name. Cyclone Tauktae's (pronounced Tau'Te) name originates from a Burmese word which translates to gecko -- a "highly vocal lizard". The cyclone was named by neighbouring country Myanmar.


Cyclones are officially named by one of the

World Meteorological Organization

's (WMO) warning centres based across the globe. The WMO/United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) Panel on Tropical Cyclones (PTC) includes 13 countries -- India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Pakistan, the Maldives, Oman, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Iran, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.
So is there any criteria when it comes to naming cyclones? While the name should ideally be short and understandable, an important factor is that it must not be insensitive.

 But why name them in the first place? For most part, nomenclature helps in attaining clarity and avoiding confusion in case there's more than one cyclone hitting coast at a time. In the long run, enlisting a name also proves to be useful when a certain cyclone needs to be mentioned.
