Non specified gender

I’m the examples “that is an umbrella” and “I have an idea” where there is no clear gender established is it acceptable to use either un or una?

All nouns have a gender.

Hola Ryan

In Spanish all nouns have a specific gender, either masculine or feminine. For inanimate things like "umbrella" or "idea" they still have a gender that needs to be memorized.
