Technical Stuff

In case of multiple names they are checked as one name, since order of the names is also important. Gender of a name is derived from database by sampling data:

  • If name appears more than 50 times and 97-100% of persons with this name have female gender then gender is supposed to be female for all persons with this name
  • If name appears more than 50 times and 90-97% of persons with this name have female gender and less than 2% have male gender then gender is supposed to be female for all persons with this name

So with entering missing names and correcting false genders, quality of finding wrong gender increases.

Here you can check gender assignment for any name

In an attempt to make the suggested correction, I go to the field for gender in my profile and it is already set to female. I switched it to neither and then back to female. Still getting error suggestion.
