  • They do reuse names for the annual list. For example, the name Alex was used in 1998 http://www.fema.gov/kids/hunames2.htm and 2004 http://www.fema.gov/kids/hunames3.htm They will retire a name after it has been associated with a particularly bad hurricane. It will not be reused for at least 10 years "to facilitate historic references, legal actions, insurance claim activities, etc. and avoid public confusion with another storm of the same name."

However, because the name does not appear after that time, it is assumed that the name was retired retrospectively for the damages caused by the 1954 storm of the same name. http://www.publicaffairs.noaa.gov/grounders/retirednames.html
