We have West Hollywood, but it's named after a neighborhood in the city... not the city itself. There's an unicorporated area called East LA too I believe.

St. Paul: West St. Paul, South St. Paul, North St. Paul. There's an East St. Paul, too, but it is what the locals call the east side of the city, it's not a suburb.

We annexed them all, muahahahaha!

But there used to be an East Omaha, North Omaha and South Omaha, I don't think there ever was a city named West Omaha, and no one can forget Omaha Beach, our suburb in France!

Canton and North Canton.

North Canton used to be New Berlin, but they changed it during WWI.

There is also Canton South, but I'm unclear whether it's just a part of Canton, or an unincorporated part of Canton Township.
