[Opinions] Brother for Citra
I need a name for a character called Citra's older brother (pronounced SIT-tra, I half made up the name). Their last name is On; they're originally Vietnamese but they were both born in the UK so I want them to have vaguely English names. My only thought has been Jethro. Any ideas?*LISTEN TO THE MUSTN'TS

Considering Citra is an Indonesian name, I'd spell it Sitra.
Sitra and Jerome work
Sitra and Simon
Sitra and Rowan
Sitra and Ivan
Sitra and Lewis

Imo it's kinda rude to change the spelling of someone else's character name unless they specifiy they're open to changes.

Thanks for the reply! I really like Jerome and Citra. You're right that for the type of name it should be Sitra... but I was going for a bit of a pun - Citra On, Citron - so I think I'll leave it Citra. They're just characters for myself.*

If it's just for yourself then that's a bit different.If you were going to publish and claim you'd invented the name and given it to a character of a different nationality then that would be upsetting.I hope you enjoy writing about your characters.
