SharePoint 2013 Sorry, you cant create a new item with Quick Edit because this view is missing one or more required columns. April 3, 2014 on obsolete29.com

I have this really annoying issue with SharePoint 2013 and searching the web hasn't come up with an answer yet.

I'm unable to create new items in a custom list. I get the following error message:

Sorry, you can't create a new item with Quick Edit because this view is missing one or more required columns. To create a new item, please click "New Item" or add required columns to this view.

If I modify the view and add Name (for use in forms) to the view, I'm then able to add a value to the column and SharePoint allows me to create a new record. It doesn't seem to matter what I enter into the Name field when adding the record as it replaces my value automatically.

I checked the Columns setting for the list and there's no Name column listed for me to remove the Required setting from!

Uhm, so what gives? Why can't I add new records to a custom list using Quick Edit mode? It works fine if I click the New button and use the form.

This is a new custom list on SharePoint 2013 SP1.
