This is possible to display non-latin characters into the "From Address" during an emailing, but it requires a few steps.
Example: You want to have some japanese characters into the From Address field, like: ヤニック
1/ Translate this string into UTF-8.
There is a bunch of websites which allow you to do that. But this one makes the job: https://r12a.github.io/apps/conversion/

Go down to UTF-8 code units and copy the result:
2/ Fill the spaces
Open a notepad and paste the UTF-8 string (E3 83 A4 E3 83 8B E3 83 83 E3 82 AF).
Then, make a replace of " " with "="
You must get this new string: E3=83=A4=E3=83=8B=E3=83=83=E3=82=AF
3/ Add it in "From Address".
There is some specific rules to know about the MIME (Multipurpose Internet Email Extensions). Please refer to this article.

The final string to paste in "From Address" will be like that:
=?UTF-8?Q?=E3=83=A4=E3=83=8B=E3=83=83=E3=82=AF?= <your email address>
And email received will be like this:
