• vernacular names seem to be liberally shared for both: lime and lemon, as well as their many varieties; though when in need of being specific, adjectives are used colloquially

Deae Dinesh ji,
The Kannada name   ಲಿಂಬೆ  and English transliteration limbe  are correct.   However,  it's more common Kannada name, rather correct form  is NImbe ( Nimbe kayi or Nimbe hannu) .   If you want you may incorporate.
Thanks & Regards,
M.Swamy
