Q18220911

male given name borne by a female (Q18220911): (delete | history | links | entity usage | logs | discussion)

This item seems like a bad idea for two reasons:

  1. The gender of names depends on the fads of the day. For example, Ashley used to be an exclusively male name and is now an exclusively female name. Sometimes these changes can take place in a matter of a few years, for example, in the 70s, Ryan was exclusively a male name. Then in the 80s there was a surge of women named Ryan.
  2. The gender of names depends on the culture and language. For example, Camille is a male name in French and a female name in English.

I don't think we have enough manpower to keep up with problem #1 and I don't think we have enough expertise to keep track of problem #2. In most cases, the use of this item will simply be one person's opinion at one point in time, not objective long-lasting metadata.. --Kaldari (talk) 00:24, 17 March 2015 (UTC)

Yes, but I would like to get other people's opinion before removing it. If there's a better place to discuss this (that doesn't require removing all the uses first), please let me know. Kaldari (talk) 07:11, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
You know you're talking to a bot? Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 08:00, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
It hasn't been used on any of the names you mention. What problem are you trying to create? --- Jura 07:08, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
That's true, but as soon as John becomes a popular name for women, we're going to be in trouble. Kaldari (talk) 07:11, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Future tense? So, currently, we are trying to find a solution for a non-existing problem? --- Jura 07:28, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
Well, there's also the current problem of deciding how this item would actually be applied. Are we supposed to take into account all language usage or only the usage in the person's native language? Should it be based on the name usage at the time of the person's birth or current name usage? Does it matter that it probably won't be verifiable? How are borderline cases decided, like women named Chris? Kaldari (talk) 07:50, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
  • See related discussion at Wikidata:Project chat#Gender from names. Note the existence of male given name (Q12308941) and female given name (Q11879590); if we're going to have those used as properties for names (which is seeming a less and less reliable approach to me) then some kind of "usually but not always male/female name" property is probably required.

  • My god, this is not even a legit RfD request for an Item, you should discuss this on it's talkpage rather than here, and change the content based on discussion, not trying to delete it.AldNonUcallinme? 15:18, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

  Not deleted, please use the talk page of the item to seek consensus about this. We don't need this request for ever on this page. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 08:00, 21 April 2015 (UTC)

Yes, because you've emptied it. It contained a OKATO ID (P721), so I think it meets our notablity policy. Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 07:02, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
