The name Imbudo (Tagalog: [ɪmˈbudo], ihm-BOO-doh) has been used to name one tropical cyclone in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. The name was contributed by the Philippines and it means "funnel" in Philippine Spanish and Tagalog.

Because Imbudo made extensive damage both over the Philippines and China, the name became retired and was replaced by Molave in 2004.

The name Molave (Tagalog: [moˈlavɛ], mo-LAH-veh) has been used to name two tropical cyclones in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. The name is a Spanish corruption of mulawin, referring to the Vitex parviflora, a specie of hard wood used in furniture.[1][2]
