Westernesse was a name in the Common Speech for the Isle of Númenor.


The ending -ess (also in Elvenesse) was used in romance literature for fictional lands that had partly francized names.


In the 13 century chivalric romance King Horn, Westernesse is a kingdom ruled by "King Ailmar" and it is reached by ship by Horn.
