Vanesha is a feminine name of English origin, acting as a fun spin on the classic name Vanessa. Its original name was actually invented by writer Jonathon Swift, who first mentioned it in the poem honoring his lover, “Cadenus and Vanessa.” Later on, Vanessa became used to describe a whole genus of butterflies. If you want to inspire your little one to take flight, both in the real world and in the literary world, Vanesha can make for a lovely choice.
