additionalHow can you not love a name that’s also a butterfly species? Even though it’s very much an ’80s artifact, the sheer prettiness of this name keeps it from being a one-decade wonder (or even falling that far from its peak). Interestingly, Vanessa’s actually one of the original made-up names. Author Jonathan Swift created it for a poem in 1726 by playing with the letters in his friend Esther Vanhomrigh’s name. (No, we’re not holding a grudge. It’s a lovely name and that’s that.)

additionalInvented by author Jonathan Swift for his poem 'Cadenus and Vanessa' (1726). He arrived at it by rearranging the initial syllables of the first name and surname of Esther Vanhomrigh, his close friend. Vanessa was later used as the name of a genus of butterfly. It was a rare given name until the mid-20th century, at which point it became fairly popular.
