Hurricane Names 2011 List?

Every year, there is a list of names for tropical storms and hurricanes given officially by the government.
Is there a list of hurricane names for 2011? I wonder if all the names for 2011 are ready or they're decided as new tropical storms form.
Hurricane names are now maintained and updated by an international committee of the World Meteorological Organization.
If such a list exists, please let me know where to find it.

Here's the list of 2011 hurricane names, in no particular order.

Arlene, Bret, Cindy, Don, Emily, Franklin, Gert, Harvey, Irene, Jose, Katia, Lee, Maria, Nate, Ophelia, Philippe, Rina, Sean, Tammy, Vince, Whitney.

An interesting fact is that hurricanes names can be repeated throughout the years.
For example Irene, can be used again in the future to name another hurricane.
However, when a storm is so strong that will be remembered for many years, the World Meteorological Association retires its name, so for example Katrina will never be used again.
