Why do hurricanes have female names?

Hurricane Irene hit the US coast. It did do damage but thankfully has weakened now. So i happened to read about hurricanes and observed that almost all that have occurred have female names like Irene, Katrina, Linda, etc. Why do you think they have female names?

I think they might have male storms, though I'm not sure. I wonder why we even name them at all, but I guess it's easier for the public to keep track of them. I think the names are kind of homely though, I think we should give them more common names, such as Shaniqua and Lafondria.
