gendered naming patterns 
13th-Mar-2011 12:47 pm
boom de yada!
A friend of mine just asked an interesting question on his facebook:
Are there any languages/cultures that don't have ANY distinctly gendered naming patterns for people? (Like "female" names ending in vowels, etc)

I have no idea! But I figured somebody here might. Any thoughts?

Thank you!

English has some - nothing hard and fast, obviously, but definitely some distinct patterns - I think my friend was asking was if there are any languages that don't have *any* at all.
