Help baby float like a butterfly through life with the original name Vannaleigh! Meaning “butterfly,” the English and Greek name Vannaleigh is a variation and derivation of the classic feminine name Vanessa. The origins of this name are quite interesting: author Jonathan Swift created the name for a poem called Cadenus and Vanessa. Later, entomologist Johann Fabricius named a species of butterfly Vanessa, as an ode to the poem. Vannaleigh takes this traditional name and adds a level of modernity to it that will help baby stand out from the crowd.
