Another Zadar

Character naming is a tricky business. I remember reading an interview where Ray Bradbury tells of his own surprise when he realized that two of the main characters in Fahrenheit 451, Montag and Faber, are named after makers of writing supplies. Presumably the names slipped into his subconscious while he was working. It's always a surprise when you find out that your characters have names with meaning you are not aware of. Today I found mention of another Za'dar; a place in Croatia with an interesting way of approaching the sea.
