Not every character must have a name

Something that might not seem important at first is the name of the character. Not every character must have a name; it is not even essential that the main character has one but there should be a way to identify them. Today it is usual to find stories in which a character is defined just by his activity – the newsman, the lady, the man – or by a nickname used by the author or the other characters. It is even possible that a character has a given name but the writer decides to name him by one of his features.
