I have been on vacation for a while and so just saw this.

Sorry to confuse you by using the phrase "legendary character". The original Vanessa is a character in the poem by the Irish author Jonathan Swift titled Cadenus and Vanessa. He created the name to honor his friend Esther VanHomrigh by blending the Van from her surname with "-essa", short for Esther. So in Vanessa's case the "legend" is the one written by Swift.
