The Name in the Game

Technically, there’s no such thing as a “nameless” NPC, just unnamed NPCs that haven’t received a name *yet*. Good names can be somewhat tricky, but thinking of any name is better than leaving a character unnamed. Even a silly name or one churned out by a random generator is superiour to no name at all. Characters in the world don’t know who you planned for them to meet, and the players shouldn’t either. They should be able to interact with whomever they wish.
