Proper noun edit

Hanna

  1. a female given name from Biblical Hebrew, also a short form of Johanna
    • 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?
      ―Hanna. It's a beautiful name. And so fitting. It's from Hebrew and means "grace". Who came up with it?
    • 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.
      Hanna shares her name with quite a few young women coming to terms with their femininity in Finnish literature. In J.L.Runeberg's idyllic epic Hanna (1836), a daughter of a priest falls in love with a city-dwelling young student and experiences her first love in a summer idyll. Another kind of growing up story is told fifty years later by Minna Canth in her novella Hanna (1886), where the eponymous main character comes to realize women's subservient position.
  2. Hannah (mother of Samuel)
    • 1642, The Holy Bible, Samuel 1:8:
      Ja Elkana hänen miehens sanoi hänelle: Hanna/ mitäs itket? ja mixes syö? ja mingätähden sinun sydämes on nijn murhellinen? engö minä sinulle parambi ole cuin kymmenen poica?
      Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? am I not better to thee than ten sons?
  3. Anna (biblical prophetess)
    • 1642, The Holy Bible, Luke 2:36:
      Ja Hanna Prophetissa Phanuelin tytär/ Asserin sugusta/ oli joutunut pitkälle ijälle/ ja oli elänyt miehens cansa seidzemen ajastaica hänen Neidzydestäns.
      And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity;
