    All Nessie makes me think of is Renesmee from Twilight... I love Agnes but, unfortunately, yes, Nessie does remind me a lot of the Loch Ness Monster. I do think it's adorable, though and I would use it!

    A couple more I can think of:

    Anastasia -- bit of a stretch
    Genesis -- definitely not my favourite name
    Nessa -- sounds like a short form of Vanessa, so I wouldn't use ANOTHER short form with Nessie
    Wednesday -- worse than Tuesday

    Ernestine, which I find both daring and darling.

    Tennessee, which is questionable for a girl.. though Reese Witherspoon thought otherwise.

    Nessie also makes me think of the Loch Ness monster, but I love Nessa. I read a book with a Glynnis, and she was called Nessa. I've read the Twilight books and I don't remember her being called Nessie -- not saying she wasn't, but just that I don't remember it, so I don't think it will be people's first impression.
