Is "Name Merge" the right option for two entrys from the same person with the same name but different gender?

Hi!

So, the subject is pretty self-explanatory. There are two entries with my name, the same name, but the difference is one has: "(I)" and the other has: "(II)". The "(I)" entry is the one that I want gone. It's not only empty but also labels me as a man. The "(II)" entry labels me correctly as a woman and I have credits there as an actress. The ideal option would be to completely delete the first entry since it's incorrect. There's no option as such.

Looking for possible solutions I ended up reading about the "Name Merge" option, but since in one entry I'm labeled as a man and in the other one I'm labeled as a woman, the information of both of them would combine. I'm afraid that's gonna mess up with the credits that I have, or the gender...

What should I do? 

Thank you in advance!

Itslala: If the (I) page has no credits, how do you know it's a page about you? (Even if you have a traditionally female name, thus making the page unlikely to be about a real male person, we can't completely rule out that possibility.)

Is there anything -- any credits, any links, any biographical data -- that connects the (I) page to you besides your name?

I hope I can explain this properly.

When I entered IMBd to check the latest credits a director added of me from one of my projects, I found out about the "(I)" and the "(II)".

I got the credits removed by the IMDb team from the "(I)" because I explained to them that my entry got duplicated and the first one labels me as male. That's how it happened. Due to someone misgendering me. 

I hoped once the IMDb team removed those credits, the entry would also be gone, but no. It stayed there, empty. 

My name is Laura. Laura in Spanish is a female name. That's why I want the empty entry that labels me as male gone. I already have another one that is the right one.

In this case, "Name Marge" is an option or there's another thing I should do?

@itslala​ Hi! Ideally we would like to keep the page with the lower roman numeral, you can merge the pages, and submit a name gender correction after that.

Cheers!
