OK. I see that for 000A there is not now an official Unicode name in 
4.0, and that "LINE FEED (LF)" is an alias. Such an alias, shown in 
uppercase letters, indicates that it _was_ the name of the character in 
The Unicode Standard, Version 1.0. See The Unicode Standard 4.0, p. 415 
("Aliases"). This seems odd. One intuitively assumes that any defined 
Unicode character has a Unicode name.
