From the Thai word Phailin meaning "sapphire". The cyclone originated from the Gulf of Thailand, and hence, the Thai name.

It is Thailand that got the turn to name this cyclone in the Indian Ocean as 'Phailin', that is now on top of everyone's mind . Phailin is sapphire in Thai as the country took it's turn procedurally laid down by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) at it's meeting of the Panel on Tropical Cyclones in 2000.While names of people are avoided the database of names are from those selected that are familiar to the people in each region.
While the Nation awaits with a bated breath over Phailin, the next cyclone in the Indian Ocean - whenever it comes - has already been named - Helen by Bangladesh
