@Bas van Beek, thanks for testing numpy on 3.10rc1 and sending that link over. I was confused about what your original question entailed. The link provided much more context :). Seems that __name__ = None unintentionally breaks things that use annotations to generate docstrings.

> I don't recall ever seeing a non-string name before, so I'd argue that this is a bug.


> Whether we should have this feature is a distinct "problem" from its `__name__` being `None`

If we properly set __name__ for all typing special forms, it won't have this problem anymore right? So we can kill two birds with one stone :).

> I'd like to submit a PR.

Please do! I'm re-opening this issue. Thanks for informing us.
