Which languages other than english and Swedish have traditionally gender neutral pronouns?

Boosts welcome! :)

@funnypanja If Swedish is then probably Norwegian too? Since they're quite similar languages.

@funnypanja On a second thought, are those gender-neutral? For example: English uses "he/she", Swedish uses "Han/hon", Finnish uses only "hän". All I know, haha.

@funnypanja Oh true! So it's possible to use gender-neutral. Finnish doesn't even have the option for separating he and she, haha.

@funnypanja Hungarian, iirc, only has one set of (singular) third-person pronouns!
