** Haruka ([[VisualNovel/LittleBusters Saigusa]], [[Anime/{{Free}} Nanase]], [[Anime/YosugaNoSora Kasugano]], [[Manga/SailorMoon Tenoh]] or a [[Manga/{{Tactics}} tengu]] - the problem with the last one was that someone else gave him that name deliberately, and he doesn't really like it because he's a {{Badass}} in-universe)

Sometimes the only name you get is an ambiguous abbreviation, such as Sam. Or a gender-neutral name, such as Dominique or Claude in French. Or worse, a name whose "default gender" changes from one country to another (or even over time in the same country!), like "Andrea" which is typically female in the U.S. but typically male in Italy (in Greek it means "manly"). And let's not forget the names that must be written down to determine the gender, such as Tony/Toni, Adrian/Adrienne or Francis/Frances.
