Call me ignorant, but I don't know how special formatting (e.g. quotation marks) gets added to page titles. And therefore I can't fix the mistake in this page's title.

At some point, it's been quoted as "Character Name and the Noun" Phrase, (i.e. a phrase of the form "Character Name and the Noun"), which is wrong. "Noun phrase" is the term for a multi-word phrase (e.g. "Philosopher's Stone") that fills the role of a noun, even if some of its components aren't nouns.

The quotation marks are unnecessary and should be removed—or else put around the entire title ("Character Name and the Noun Phrase"), although that seems kind of silly to me.

I've requested a revert to the original, because you're absolutely right.

Do "Character and the Inanimate Object With a Proper Name" examples go here, or under Name and Name? E.g. Hornblower and the Hotspur

Here, if it's the object which is cited. There, if the proper name is cited.
