Don't know about all the names but some are winds :-

Mistral : a generally northerly wind in the Rhone valley in France
Levanter : easterly wind in the extreme westernmost Mediterranean
Tramontana : cold north wind blowing down from the mountains in Italy and Spain.

Might be of help - but then might not!

mestral-->Catalan language-->mistral-->The mistral is a strong, cold and usually dry regional wind in France, coming from the north, which accelerates when it passes through the valleys of the Rhone and the Durance Rivers to the coast of the Mediterranean Sea around in the Camargue region. It affects the northeast of the plain of Languedoc and Provence to the east of Toulon, where it is felt as a strong west wind. It has a strong influence all along the Mediterranean coast of France, and often causes sudden storms in the Mediterranean between Corsica and the Balearic Islands

Tramontane (Tramuntana, Tramontana) is a classical name for a northern wind. The exact form of the name and precise direction varies from country to country. The word came to English from Italian tramontana, which developed from Latin trānsmontānus (trāns- + montānus), "beyond the mountains/across the mountains", referring to the alps in the North of Italy. The word has other non-wind-related senses: it can refer to anything that comes from, or anyone who lives on, the other side of mountains, or even more generally, anything seen as foreign, strange, or even barbarous.

The Winds of the Mediterranean
Mistral A cold, dry wind blowing from the north over the northwest coast of the Mediterranean Sea, particularly over the Gulf of Lions. Also called CIERZO. See also FALL WIND.

Viento de Levante or the Levanter refers to an easterly wind that blows in the western Mediterranean Sea, an example of mountain-gap wind.

The Gregale is a Mediterranean wind that can occur during times when a low pressure area moves through the area to the south of Malta and causes a strong, cool, northeasterly wind to affect the island. It also affects other islands of the Western Mediterranean.

The Poniente is a warm and dry westerly wind blowing in the Straits of Gibraltar and along the coasts of the north-western Mediterranean. It is the opposite of the Levante (Levanter).
