    • 1984 Doris Lessing, The Diaries of Jane Somers, Michael Joseph, ISBN 0718125177, page 64:
      Clever little sister Janna. Correction, Jane. She wasn't going to call me Janna, Jane it was and Jane it will be, to the end. How many times I have said to her, Georgie, no one calls me Jane, no one, I want to be Janna. I can't remember to, says she, making a point, and that's that. She thinks Janna is a smart little name to go with a smart little job.
