Nomen Nescio
Nomen nescio (/ˈnoː.men ˈnes.ki.oː/), IPA pronounced [ˈnoː.mɛ̃ nɛsˈkɪ.oː] abbreviated to N.N., is used to signify an anonymous or unnamed person. From Latin nomen, name, and nescio, I do not know, it literally means, I do not know the name.[1] One use for this name is to protect against retaliation when reporting a crime or company fraud. In the Netherlands, a police suspect who refuses to give his name is given an "N.N. number." In Germany, and Belgium, N.N. is also frequently seen in university course lists, indicating that a course will take place but that the lecturer is not yet known; the abbreviation in this case means "nomen nominandum" ("the name is to be announced"). Thus, the meaning is different from the above definition and is the same as TBD (to be decided). "N
