Even in the ramayana it was written as agastybhratha ( sri rama goes to his asrama before going to agastya\'s asrama). the sage agastya was so famous that even his brother was known as agatya-bhratha ( brother of agastya). if you know his real name kindly share it with us after giving sufficient time for the other forum friends to answer.

Name of the brother of Agastya is Sudarshana( though no one used to call him by that name and was often reffered to as Agastyabhrata) Ref: http:// www.valmikiramayana.net/aranya/aranya_11_
