Problem is that both can be expected behaviour.
1) the sender didn't know or fill in the real name, but I would like an
answer to have it; likely in everyday communication
2) the mail was sent to an address that on purpose doesn't have a name
assigned, like a role account, it may even be it's read and answered
by different persons
A solution IMHO is a quad-option asking the user whether to complete the
name when answering such mail. Even better might be two alternates
lists, with and without realname fill, but that somewhat sounds like
OpenPGP/GnuPG encrypted mail preferred in all private communication.
