    • 1991 Peter Hedges, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, Simon & Schuster (1999), →ISBN, page 60:
      She smells like expensive soap and her teeth are shiny-white. She does not in any way look like her name. It's not her fault that she was born in a time when people believed in names like Wanda, Dottie and Betty. She's more of a Vanessa or Paulina.
