  You know how Quilty's name is used in the novel in that French phrase qu'il-t-y. I want to say that Nabokov chose the name just so he could use it in that French pun. He could have picked millions of names, why that one. It must be the only name in  all literature that was chosen just to pun on  in a single but crucially  revealing instance!! Amazing if you think  of it like that. Talk about literary!

Oh, where does that pun occur in the novel? I missed it of course the first time I read it. Yep!
