I am wondering about the Pinyin syllable ne (specifically, ), because it is the ending of the name of a friend of mine. We are searching for a Chinese character that accurately represents this sound -- is too strong because it sounds like na and I am not sure if is really appropriate for a name.

Are there any characters appropriate for a name that have this sound ne or ?

I think you could reference the name Zinedine,Zidane, which has been translated as 齐内迪纳, 齐达内.

So, you can use either 内 or 纳 to transliterate ne.
