    • 1990 Tuula-Liina Varis, Vauvat yhdentyvät Eurooppaan, Suomen Kuvalehti 30 (27.7.)1990
      Koreita nimiä ku köyhän kakaroilla, sanottiin ennen. Köyhällä ei muuta koreata ollut lapselleen antaa. Itsellenikin on läheinen lounaissuomalainen maatyöläisen pesue, jossa suomalaisen nimen peräkaneettina vilisi Wilhelmiinaa, Aleksandraa ja Amandaa, jopa Dagmar. Suuresti epäilen, osasiko kumpikaan vanhemmista sitä lausua.
