Bind Enum to a DropDown

So, you have an enum defined as follows:
public enum Gender
        Male= 0,
        Female= 1
Code to Bind the Dropdown
string[] names = Enum.GetNames(typeof(Gender));
var values = (Gender[])Enum.GetValues(typeof(Gender));
for (int i = 0; i < names.Length; i++)
      DdlGender.Items.Add(new ListItem(names[i], values[i].ToString()));
