Hennessy is NMSAA, I really dislike it. Sorry.
That being said, I think it is just too much with Jamisen.
I think that most people would make certain negative judgments about you and your family with name like Hennessy, especially on a daughter.
I generally always say that if you like something, then go for it and don't worry about what anyone else thinks. However, I don't like that for a girl's name and would go with something else. I'd be afraid that she may catch a lot of grief about it when she's older. What if kids make fun of her and say that her parents were drunks so that's how she got her name? Or something along those lines? Just something to think about. If you like the name Nessey/Nessie, I'd even go with that as her actual name. JMHO

I have friends who have a 3 year old granddaughter named Hennessy Rose. I didn't realize it was a liquor when I first heard the name and thought it pretty and unique. As soon as they told me it was a liquor, I was like, whatev... While the name is still pretty, there will be some teasing from it, especially in the teen years. Go with what works for you, though!
I do have to say, I'm not fond of Nessy... I keep thinking of Ole Nessy, the LockNess Monster and it just drums up teasing for size, but hopefully, she wouldn't have that problem
