Because it used to be part of Virginia until the western counties formed their own state. Mostly as opposing slavery. They kept the Virginia name but put West before it . Kind of like North and South Carolina.

Because West Virginia is west of the state of Virginia.

West Virginia is west of Virginia, South Dakota is south of North Dakota, North Carolina is north of South Carolina. The fact that West Virginia is in the eastern US, South Dakota in the north, and North Carolina in the south is not the basis of the naming.

It used to be part of the state of Virginia...a western part of that state.
