    Sorry, that can't be changed. The names are normative and immutable after standardization by ISO/IEC10646 and Unicode (and thus approval by governments, including India which has a voting seat voting at both working commitees).

    Such correction can only be added in the annotations found in the charts, or in the "names list" file that is used to generate those charts and which contains entries for these annotations.
