The fact that "Ikuko" means 19 and "many childs" is the only adequate hint I can see in the theory, but in my opinion it is not enough to reach a conclusion regarding her identity being Yasu.

I value more thematic narrative hints rather than crude mathematical facts. To believe in the Yasu=Ikuko I should see something that thematically and narratively suggests that, something in the way she acts or talks that would suggest she is Yasu.

I do not believe that Ryuukishi would simply throw an Ikuko and the expect us to conclude that she must be Yasu.

At any rate what I mean to say is that at least this theory has some basis to it, albeit weak. It is still better than "Ikuko was Eva's confidante" that Renall suggested earlier.
