Thanks for all the feedback! I agree that it's a beautiful and in my opinion, timeless, name. Even if most would consider it dated, that doesn't phase me at all. I am even really liking the way it sounds with my last name now, but I don't know if I can get past the mis-matchiness of the siblings. The style aspect I could get over, I suppose. But as some of you pointed out, Brenna and Vanessa might sound too close! Names get shortened to one syllable most of the time if our busy household, and are Bren and Ness too confusing? I suppose I could always go the "Van" route but Ness/Nessa is so much cuter! Ahh, I don't know. One to keep in mind for now. Still got a few months to go

I think it's a great name. There have been other threads on this name, and opinions ranged from dated to timeless, but the majority seemed to think it an underused beauty, which i agree with. Plus I love the nickname Nessa/Ness...it reminds me of Tessa/Tess, and I like it a millions times more than Nelly/Nell.

I wanted to chime in because my daughter's name is Vanessa, and I am of Irish decent. That's partly why we chose it-connection to an Irish poet and the Nessa nickname possibility. I think Vanessa is pretty and chic without being trendy. I also think it pairs well with your other siblings. I think being "cool and fresh" means not caring about what everyone else thinks is "cool and fresh."
