The 2051 Atlantic hurricane season was a very active season, featuring 15 named storms, 9 hurricanes, and 5 major hurricanes. Despite the activity, no Category 5 hurricanes formed.
Overall, the season's activity was reflected with a high cumulative accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) rating of 194. ACE is, broadly speaking, a measure of the power of the hurricane multiplied by the length of time it existed, so storms that last a long time, as well as particularly strong hurricanes, have high ACEs.

The following list of names was used for named storms that formed in the North Atlantic in 2051. The names not retired from this list were used again in the 2057 season. This was the same list used in the 2045 season with the exceptions of Gina and Kathleen, which replaced Grace and Kate, respectively. The names Gina, Indira, Kathleen and Nathan were used for the first time this year.
On April 6, 2052, at the annual session of the RA IV Hurricane Committee, the names Fred, Henri, and Kathleen were retired, and they will never be used again for another Atlantic hurricane. They were replaced with Finn, Heath, and Kara for use in the 2057 season.
