Would it not be better to arrange with the Unicode Consortium to have
this done in conjunction with them? They are trying more and more to
coordinate with companies like Microsoft to align data and if we do this
"just by ourselves" I fear there will be a lot of extra work down
stream. We had this recently with all the emoji and country names
between CLDR and Microsoft.
It might also be worth checking where Wikipedia
example) get their names from?
Either way, I think for this feature to be useful the search needs to
search at the same time for the localized name and the official unicode
name, because otherwise if I search (for example) for "latin small
character" and some have been localized to "Lateinischer Kleinbuchstabe"
and some not, I get a strange list of results.
Plus of course there's my old pipe-dream of being able to assing a
keyboard shortcut to the character (like you can in Word) once you found
it, using the character map to search for chars is very time consuming
if you have to do it a lot. It keeps popping up in enhancement bugs too
now and then

Wanted your opinion on this patch:
Soon it will be possible to search for unicode names, however this is
only possible in English. I don't think that maps exist in other
language (well it exists in French but it's the only language I'm aware of).
Translating all this is not possible. Would it be ok for you to
implement this feature anyway? I'm balanced because this is a very
useful feature, but on the other hand it won't be for some users.
