Meaning:Satisfaction; Pure
Anessa as a girl's name is of Greek origin, stemming from the names Agnes and Annis. Baby Anessa is sure to succeed and thrive with her name meaning “satisfaction.” While the name is being chosen by parents in the US today as a unique derivation from Vanessa, it has ample cultural associations, too. From Greece to Russia, and making a stop in the UK to meet with sister Ann, this classic Greek name has many possible twists. Who knows, your little Anessa might land herself in the Grecian sunshine, the snowy Russian winter, or maybe stay right at home with you. Whatever she chooses, she is sure to find like minds that are just as pure of heart as she is.
