Interesting problem.

The following paper presented methods based on knowledge-poor features
to guess grammatical gender in several Indo-European languages:

S. Cucerzan and D. Yarowsky. Minimally Supervised Induction of Grammatical
Gender. Proceedings of HLT/NAACL 2003, Edmonton, 2003.

However, your problem seems harder, in that you are working with names,
not nouns, and I suppose that In Chinese you are not going to get any
morphological cue to gender...

Regards,

Marco
