Hi,

is there a particular reason for the slightly different names that Emacs
(version 25.0.92) and Python (version 3.6.0a0) give to a single Unicode entity?

Just to mention one codepoint, ⋖ is called "LESS THAN WITH DOT" accordingly to
Emacs' C-x 8 RET TAB menu, while in Python:

    >>> import unicodedata
    >>> unicodedata.name('⋖')
    'LESS-THAN WITH DOT'
    >>> print("\N{LESS THAN WITH DOT}")
      File "<stdin>", line 1
    SyntaxError: (unicode error) ...: unknown Unicode character name

ciao, lele.
