The first video game about Protagonist naming was released in 1982.

Beamdog , Microprose and Nintendo has published most of these games

The "must" bit comes only to play in games where no default name is given.

Naming the protagonist is common in RPGs, but not always there. Multiplayer games should not be marked as it's unlikely people participate anonymously.

Does NOT count If this is only for the player profile or save slot.
