The winds are named from where they are coming from because when you face into the wind you are looking in that direction. Thus the North wind is from the North because that is the direction you are facing.
About everything else is the direction they are going; Currents, Your Boat and so forth.
This is not that hard to understand... Not hard at all.

BTW: My post #13 here has not been answered yet... It is about figuring distance with a known chart scale.
