Another name technicality

This question is in a similar vein to the previous one, about a fictional character sharing a name with a real life person.

What happens if, in a fantasy novel, you make up a name for a person or place, but later find it's already been used in existing published fiction? Does the original author have any recourse against you, even if you honestly thought the name was completely original?
