I believe that Beethoven's friend Goethe published a late collection of poems titled the West-Östlicher Divan (reflecting the era's widespread image of the "East" as a realm of exoticism, splendor, and sensuality). The orchestra's name could be a reference to that.

That's exactly what it is, in fact.
