Suzy was put in with Marilyn, Candy, Lolita and Tiffany as names that "Might
work. Some movies are a financial success."
As with Samantha, I think the context is a bit different than it would be in
an English-speaking country (though I don't necessarily agree with the
authors that Suzy is a porn name even in Swedish).
