don't think it is possible to insert a unicode char by its unicode name. (Florian gave code for that i guess)

though, there are several ways to easily find and insert unicode chars you want in emacs, by ascii markup, by your personal frequently used char set, by particular lang's input methods, by code point, etc.

this page gives some detail.

i think it'd be useful for emacs to have some visual char map that lets you select or view a category of chars for easy insertion.
(as in OS X's Character Pallette or Windows Character Map)
Shouldn't be diffucult to write one in elisp but as far as i know it havn't been done.
