Aug 10 '17 at 10:22 comment added muru FWIW, there's a Hindi (and presumably Sanskrit) word वर्धमान (vardhamān), also the name of the 24th Jain Tirthankara and I wouldn't find it unusual to see an Indian male named Vardhaman. But I suppose Faulkner might not even have known what Hindi or Jainism are, so presumably he got the name from somewhere else, making it unusual.
