In case of multiple names they are checked as one name, since order of the names is also important. If it consists of multiple name, then if all names are definitely male/female, then gender is probably male/female and is not classified as this error. In such case it is in Space:DBE_504 or Space:DBE_508. Otherwise gender of a name cannot be derived from database by sampling data.
