No one in their right mind would name their child Citron in France lol. Would you name your kid Lemon?
Just name your kid Lemon and be done with it.
I agree with Virginie. If the kid is in a french speaking country it will sound awful and he will get teased to no end. Names of fruits are popular nowadays in France especially for girls (Cerise (cherry), Myrtille (blueberry) etc.) but Citron, for boys sounds horrible as a first name.
UN citron: it's for boys. Well, if your child doesn't go in a part of the world where we speack French, it can be ok ... otherwise, it will be very difficult for him.
This is a beautiful gem!!! X
