Is it possible for a character's name to be nothing but blank space? Like literally "nothing" and still count as a "name"?
I believe that you can't make a nameless character if they are referred to by a name with that meaning or a title that references this because it goes against that nature, so I was thinking of a character's "name" being nothing but blank space. Not redacted text like (██████) or text like ______, —— or **** but as literally:
It's a "name" but unable to said, can't be written and also a paradox because it's both a name and not since it's pure "nothingness". It can't even be called nothing because nothing is descriptive as something being absent, but is just... there, as is. Can't be anything.
Is there anything like this that has been done before? Just using "blank space" as a "name"? Is it too confusing to do or does it come across as edgy?
Nevertheless I appreciate all the responses and opinions!
