    [JP] Need help with a character's name.

    リャンキナー = Liang ????

    I'm not sure how to stylize this name.
    So if anyone can help me out, I'd be really grateful.
    He's a character from Sidooh. He's the prince of
    Ryuukyuu Kingdom.

    I'm not sure, but ...
    perhaps the name has an Indian origin.

    Ryan: meaning - Little king (Resource link)
    Kinner: meaning - a demi god (Resource link)

    They are both used for names of males, and that may fit the prince's profile.

    At first I thought that his name is in Mandarin. Well he's from Okinawa...

    Ryukyu/Ryuukyuu (琉球) is current Okinawa. The Ryukyu language is unique and quite different from the rest of Japan.
