We investigate the Westervelt equation with several versions of nonlinear damping and lower order damping terms and Neumann as well as absorbing boundary conditions. We prove local in time existence of weak solutions under the assumption that the initial and boundary data are sufficiently small. Additionally, we prove local well-posedness in the case of spatially varying $L^{\infty}$ coefficients, a model relevant in high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) applications.
