There is no such need, Chinese names are not formed in this way, if one just makes up a character how would others be able to read it, slight variants that add style to a character do not in Unicode count as new characters. Furthermore with government records in all computerised the are now strict rules on babies names in People's Reepulic of China, Taiwan, etc that prevent one making up new characters for names.

Whilst there are maybe a few thousand name CJK unified ideographs to add to UCS, there are tens of thousands of non-name CJK unified ideographs yet to be added.
