Here's an old thread from 2014 which says that the SQL Server database field is varchar rather than nvarchar, so it can't store Unicode. Unfortunate.

It would still be possible to fix a subset of the names, including "João" to "João".

Or all the accented names could be converted to use HTML &-style entity numbers, like webpages do.

Edit: hmm, that wouldn't work, see M50685343, where the name displays literally as "Vladan Vidaković" rather than "Vladan Vidaković"
