For the first time in the game we could play as we really are and not some given name character. Does that mean that the name we give to our player will be canon no matter what?

Yes, that's exactly what it means. Every single name is canon.

It's always been that way.

No, the previous game had a name for each:

-Red
-Ethan
-Brendan
-Lucas
-Hilbert
-Nate

Agreed, the name thing has always been canon. Now, what I'm curious about is how much customization there will be. On the website they show three different skin/eye/hair combos for each hero to pick from. It's too early to tell if that's all we get or if there will be more.

I won't care either way, kudos to game freak for taking a step in this direction visually.

What makes you think these guys don't have names? We just don't know them yet.
Just because there's a default name doesn't change the fact that the trainer is supposed to be your avatar.

What makes you think only the male is canon?

Placeholder or "canon" names will always exist so that the opposite gendered character can appear as an NPC.
