    Oh, I'm sorry! But it is a pretty name, and you can always call her Van or Nessa or something! Something to go with her name:

    Adrianne
    Audrina
    Edolie
    Georgina*
    Gillian*
    Imogen
    Juliet*
    Lorena
    Marissa
    Melody
    Rosalind
    Selina
    Tiffany

    Edison
    Elliott
    Garrison
    Harrison
    Nicolas
    Oliver
    Zaidin

    Good luck!

    Thanks to all of you for your kind words and great suggestions. Feeling better about our choice for the first one and a little less overwhelmed about naming the second one. You ladies are the best. :)

    Re: sibling for Vanessa

    I'm sorry to hear that you are somewhat regretting your decision. I have to tell you, though, that my name is Vanessa, and LOVE it. I have only met a handful of other Vanessa's my whole life, I get complements on it on a regular basis, and my husband thinks it's a sexy name! I've never really had a nickname, though.

    I will point out, too, that Vanessa is a genus of Butterfly, and butterflies have always been an inspiration for me. I have really taken to heart that they overcome a slow, earth-bound experience to metamorphose into a gorgeous creature of flight. It gives me hope in tough times.

    As for siblings, I think going with a name that is equally strong, uncommon, but not strange. Ideas:

    Boy:
    Nicholas
    Grant
    Alexander (really common, but shares other attributes)
    Nathaniel

    Girls:
    Gretchen
    Tabitha
    I'm sorry - I'm having trouble thinking this morning. I'll repost if I come up with more! I'm thinking something timeless, classic, long and feminine.
