Using separate branches for each developer - How to continue after merge?

We have a project where we are going to use subversion.

Each developer will have their own branch to make changes
and only the project manager can merge their changes into
the trunk.

Once the manager merges the changes from a developer
branch to the trunk, is it better to delete the developer
branch and create a new one or merge the trunk into
the developer branch?

If we delete the developer branch, I assume we cannot create
a new branch with the same name so we will have to create
new branches each time we do a merge. Is that correct?

We can create a simple branch naming convention like:
Neil_r38 to show the branch started from revision 38
of the trunk.

Any advice?
