Subject:        [Query: Literary Device]
 
A colleague of mine just asked me if I knew the term for the literary device
of having a character's name represent something central about that figure.
Since Shakespeare does this so often (Flute, Mooncalf, Abhorson), I told him
that someone on the net would undoubtedly know.  Any takers?
