    Just the regular spelling VANESSA.
    It doesn't need to be touched. The others just look wrong and unecessary.

    Vanessa is fine. Reminds me of Kath and Kim when Kim names her daughter 'Epponee' (Ebony). Totally ridiculous adding or changing letters of a name to make it individual. A, you are as individual as you want to be, regardless of how your name is spelt and B; the child has to spell it out their entire life..

    Bad spelling of names always seems to go with bad kids. Stick with the original, the others seem a bit bogan (sorry if that's harsh).

    Definitely Vanessa.

    The other spellings actually change the pronunciation, that is the emphasis changes on different syllables.

    Keep it how it's meant to be, I really don't like traditional names being spelt incorrectly.
