The name West is an up and coming word name that is ultra cool. Literally meaning "directed or proceeding toward the west," this name not only transcends direction but time. The only occasion in which the name West ever made an appearance on U.S. baby name charts was briefly in the late 1800's so if you are looking for something different yet something that has character and history, this might be the name for you.

This name would make a nice alternative to: Wes, Wesley, Weston, East, Easton or Easter.
