The name Wipha has been used to name two tropical cyclones in the western north Pacific Ocean. In addition, the erroneous Vipa was used in 2001 before the spelling was corrected by the WMO Typhoon Committee. The name was contributed by Thailand and is a female given name (วิภา Wip̣hā) that literally means ‘splendor’ or ‘lustre.’ (The spellings of Rammasun, Mekkhala and Kulap were also updated at the same time.)
