Boy's name for a protective brother

For a story I’m writing, I need a boy’s name that fit this personality; protective of his 15-year-old sister who is on a mission to find her Chinese birth parents. He is a 17 year old [name_u]West[/name_u] Point Cadet who generally acts just like any boy trying to be a man. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

Ok, just to clarify, his sister ([name_f]Lissa[/name_f])'s birth parents are American, but they moved to [name_f]China[/name_f] and stayed there. One day, [name_f]Lissa[/name_f] wandered away and ended up in [name_u]America[/name_u] with a different family (the boy’s family). So, I’m actually looking for a name for her half-brother.
[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this is more clear!

My first thought was [name_m]Julian[/name_m].
Here are some other suggestions:

Good luck!

I second [name_m]Julian[/name_m], [name_u]Jude[/name_u], [name_u]Elias[/name_u], [name_u]Arlo[/name_u], [name_u]Everett[/name_u], [name_u]Owen[/name_u], and [name_u]Kade[/name_u]. :slight_smile:
