    • 1933 Ivar Lo-Johansson, Godnatt, jord, Albert Bonniers förlag (1950), pages 127-128:
      —Du fick heta Mikael du, sade hon en gång, då hon gick förbi med grädden i en båtformad snäcka. Det var jag som föreslog det. Jag hade alltid tyckt om det namnet.
      Mikael hörde hjärtat dunka under blusen och förblev stum.
      —Pappa heter Immanuel, sade han äntligen stammande. Det har väl farmor också gett honom?
      —Ja, Immanuel, det är också ett vackert namn... Då tycktes hon bli litet tankspridd.
