Chrestomanci doesn't have to come EVERY time his name is called, though.
The name has to be said in a specific time and place, such as in Witch Week
or The Sage of Theare. I'm assuming that if people were shouting
Chrestomanci from every corner of the multiverse, nothing much would happen
unless they were at a place where the summoning spell had been set up.
