Hello, Sandy
Several messages ago ( months ago, too ) I described a movie where the
character is particularly attracted to this "jugular notch" in his beloved
and roams about his room asking a friend for this designation and the friend
answered him... but I forgot the name and have no time to see the DVD again
( perhaps if I read the book ?). I´m referring to " The English Patient" (
M.Ondaatje ).

For what it's worth:
The triangular depression on the front of the neck, below the lower
portion of the Adam's apple [cricoid cartelage] and the lateral
sternocleidomastoid muscles is called the jugular notch.
[The depression below the protuberance on the back of the skull -
The Inion - is formed by the thin tendonous attachment of the trapezius
muscles.
What's his name when he's at home? Other than the vernacular "going
for the jugular" - which probably refers to the vulnerable windpipe at
this spot - I think they await an artistic nomenclature.
