Lots of names with "-west" in them? Reply to this Post

Why do many pirates (at least on Emerald I notice) have "-west" in their names? Is it supposed to let people know of their alter egos from Meridian? And why "-west" of all words?

When the oceans merged one was east and one was west. If there were two pirates with the same name (one on each ocean), then the first one created gets to keep the name. The other one was renamed to either <name>-east or <name>-west.

The east/west also lines up with where that ocean's islands are at (either on the east/right or the west/left).

I see, that explains it. I went on hiatus when the merge happened. Thanks!
