Could Sherlock Holmes Have Existed?

Croatian Journal of Philosophy 10 (3):175-181 (2010)
Abstract
In Naming and Necessity Kripke argued against the possible existence of fictional characters. I show that his argument is invalid, analyze the confusion it involves, and explain why the view that fictional characters could not have existed is implausible
