Here is my best explanation:

'states' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'i have a girl's name?' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'i' could be 'me' and 'me' is found within the answer.
'a' is found in the answer.
'name?' could be 'rica' and 'rica' is present in the answer.
This accounts for all the letters.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).
