    • 1997 Leena Lander, Iloisen kotiinpaluun asuinsijat, WSOY, →ISBN, page 73:
      Hanna. Se on kaunis nimi. Ja niin osuva. Tulee hebreasta, merkitsee armoa. Kuka sen keksi?
      ―Linda, Lyydia sanoo. ―Ja minustakin se tuntui heti sopivalta nimeltä.
      Naiset luovat toisiinsa riemukkaan katseen; miten onnellista, että he olivat tietämättään tehneet niin viisaan valinnan.
    • 2015 Helena Ruuska, Elämän kirjailija Eeva Joenpelto, WSOY, →ISBN, page 165:
      Hannalla on suomalaisessa kirjallisuudessa monta kaimaa, monta nuorta naista, jotka heräävät omaan naiseuteensa. J.L.Runebergin idyllieepoksessa Hanna (1836) papintytär rakastuu kaupungista saapuvaan opiskelijanuorukaiseen ja kokee ensirakkautensa kesäisessä idyllissä. Toisenlaisen kasvutarinan kertoo Minna Canth viisikymmentä vuotta myöhemmin pienoisromaanissa Hanna (1886), jossa nimihenkilö herää huomaamaan naisen alistetun aseman.
