Am I really the only one associating this name with the villain of Disney's "The Little Mermaid"!?

Although a pretty name, I can't think of anything but Usrula the Seawitch in her human form. And Vanessa LOOKED way scarier than Usrula, I remember. Shame on such a nice-sounding name!

I have been intrigued by the name Vanessa since the 1950's. Now I have a real reason to love this name, besides it's sophisticated sound. That is because of that wonderful and talented Violinist, Vanessa-Mae Vanakorn Nicholson, who goes by Vanessa-Mae professionally. A child prodigy who started playing professionally at 10 years old and who is now 32 and still playing in concerts beautifully, both pop and classical.
