    The European tradition is to use primarily male names for the phonetic alphabet in non-English related languages.

    The table below (from DIN 5009) shows the German standard phonetic alphabet compared to the ITU/ICAO.

    Similar standards exist in other languages.

    Another aspect is that most younger people are completely clueless of phonetics, regardless of standard used.

    Trivia: Recently, there have been raised objections about that the Swedish phonetic alphabet is all-male.
    A proposal for a new standard using half female names has been submitted.
