The western counties of Virginia had long had differences with the eastern counties. When the Civil War began and Virginia seceded from the Union, the western counties seceded from Virginia to remain part of the Union, initially as a loyal government of the Commonwealth of Virginia. In 1863 those counties were admitted to the Union as the State of West Virginia. As a result, after the war they did not have to again become part of the then defeated Commonwealth of Virginia.
West Virginia was formed when it succeeded from Virginia. West Virginia was officially admitted into the Union on June 20, 1863. Virginia was for slavery and had succeeded from the US, but a part of Virginia wanted to stay with the Union, so it succeeded from the rest of Virginia, and since it was to the west of Virginia, it was called West Virginia.
Virginia used to be what is now West Virginia AND Virginia. On June 20, 1863, West Virginia joined the Union, leaving Virginia as a confederate state. There is no East Virginia because it has always been called just "Virginia." It's likely that there will never be an East Virginia unless the Eastern portion of Virginia becomes its own state. Then there would be a West Virginia, Virginia, and East Virginia.
