gendered naming patterns

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!

Some Vietnamese names are gendered (particularly traditional middle names), but generally speaking, most Vietnamese names tend to be unisex.
