Hurricane Decode

I was just wonering where the heck they come up with these hurricane names.
Irma which struck Florida a couple years back was the German female god of war. Now we have Isaias? So who is Isaias?

The name Isaias means God Is My Salvation and is of Spanish origin.

Proper noun
  1. A book of the Old Testament of Bible, and of the Tanakh.
  2. (Abrahamic religions) A prophet, the author of the Book of Isaiah.
  3. A male given name.
From the Ancient Greek Ἠσαΐας (Ēsaïas) from the Hebrew ישעיהו "Yahweh is salvation".
