CJK characters invented for writing personal names are extremely rare, and do not constitute a significant fraction of CJK ideographs proposed for encoding. The majority of unencoded modern-use characters in China (that are not systematic simplified forms of existing encoded characters) are used in place names or in Chinese dialects or for writing non-Chinese languages such as Zhuang.
