I am not sure why I dislike it so much. I like Veronica (which has a similar historical popularity curve) very much, and I adore Vivien and Viola - but Vanessa falls flat for me. I do know a Vanessa who is lovely but I've never liked the name.
I do love Nora, which has a rather Irish feel to me, but not Nessa.

There's nothing wrong with Vanessa. It does feel slightly dated to me - I would expect a woman in her 20s - but it wouldn't seem weird on a baby. It's a pretty name.Edward ▵ Samuel ▵ Theodore ▵ James ▵ George
