      ―Vai Mari siusta tuli, isomummon kaima. Suokoo Jumala et siun elämä ois onnellisempaa ko miun äetrukan, mummi sanoi vauvalle ja kuiskasi sitten niin kuin silloin, kun ensimmäisen kerran hänet näki ja risti sormellaan hänen otsansa:
      ―Jeesus lasta siunakkoo!
      ―Myöskin Akun äidin nimi oli Mari, äiti sanoi.
      Mummin iloinen ilme muuttui no johan mie aattelin -ilmeeksi. [ - - - ] Samalla hän rupatteli:
      ―Taisin ihan punaseks lehahtaa ko pappi sano lapse nimen. Luulin et Marja tai Maija, ko Maikiks toisinaa sanoitte.
      ―So you were named Mari, the same as your grandmother. God grant you your life to be happier than for poor mother me, the grandmother said to the baby and then whispered like when she saw her for the first time and made a cross with her fingers over her forehead:
      ―Jesus bless this child!
      ―Aku's mother too was called Mari, the mother said.
      Grandmother's happy expression turned into a 'I was thinking about it' one. [ - - - ] At the same time, she chatted:
      ―I think I turned all red when the priest said her name. I thought Marja or Maija, when you call her Maikki after all.

      Nyt Mari makasi olohuoneen sohvalla ja katseli televisiota. Hänen oikea nimensä oli Sari, mutta hän oli niin Marilyn Monroen näköinen, että hänen luontevin nimensä oli Mari.
      Now Mari was lying on the living room couch watching television. Her real name was Sari, but she looked so much like Marilyn Monroe that her most natural name was Mari.
