Betsy was retired in 1965 (although I agree it should've been retired in by the 1956 hurricane)
Gracie is not used in the current lists but is not officially retired, so it could make a comeback to replace another name.
Now, to my list:
Alma (1966) - 93 casualties and the earliest major hurricane in recorded history.
Gracie (1958) - Historic importance for being one of few hurricanes to make landfall in the Carolinas as a Cat4.
Francelia (1969) - Caused MORE casualties than Camille.
Edith (1971) - Made landfall between Nicaragua and Honduras as a Cat 5 and caused 37 casualties.
Bret (1993) - Caused 213 deaths
Gert (1993) - Caused 117 deaths
Gordon (1994) - Caused more than 1,000 deaths, especially in Haiti
Bertha (1996) - It is well remembered in North Carolina. If Fran hadn't happened, maybe it would've been retired.
Hanna (2008) - More than 500 fatalities reported (more than Gustav's, Ike's and Paloma's combined!)
Alex (2010) - Caused more than $3 billion in damages and more than 50 deaths
Hermine (2010) - Almost a billion dollars in damages and 100 presumed dead
Karl (2010) - Almost $4 billion in damages and 22 deaths
Matthew should've also been retired in 2010 for the 126 casualties it caused in Mexico and Central America. Many say that 2010 was a "low" impact season but when looking at the details, it had the potential to have 5-6 names retired.
Isaac (2012) - $3 billions in damages and 30 deaths
Earl (2016) - Caused more damages and deaths than Otto.
