Also, re: Kittenplan, I just remembered that plan = 'map' in French. So "Kittenmap" -- or if you prefer, "Kittenface". :)

Thanks for pointing that out! Makes Ann Kittenplan's name even more ironic if you knew 'plan' is 'map' in French. I didn't. Kittenplan is in the top ten of just plan mean IJ characters.

Another one of DFW's layered, downright funny character names.

If you're going for bilingual puns, Kittenplan = "quitte un plan" = "leaves a map"?

probably just a coincidence...
