Naming Convention For Stillborn Children

What's the WikiTree naming convention for unnamed stilborn children?  Trying to determine what should go in the Proper First Name field for an unnamed stillborn baby boy.  Gravemarker simply says "Stillborn Jan. 8, 1892."  There is no death or birth record for this child. Thanks.

From https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Name_Fields#Proper_First_Name

"If an infant died before he or she could be named, use Unnamed Infant."

Thank you.
Thanks for addressing this problem, that we all have come across, at one time or another.

And when the db error asks for gender, mark it false error so it won't
reappear again.   It can't be determined in many cases.

Thanks.  I will remember that.
In your case you stated the child was a boy.  I added the false error note for
anyone reading this and needing additional information at another time.  It's great how we can help each other.  And it doesn't cost a thing  except a
simple thank you!
Good answer, makes a lot of sense too.
