(In the context of property law, title refers to ownership or documents of ownership; see title (property).)

A title is a prefix or suffix added to a person's name to signify either veneration, an official position or a professional or academic qualification.


Titles of veneration

Official titles

Note: Some official titles are carried strictly for the term of the office, while others are customarily retained after the office is retired.



Professional and academic titles

Social titles

Titles conventionally appended to persons' names in social life. Some professional titles are used in social life, such as Rev.; others usually are not (Dr., for example, is generally not used in the US in the case of a Ph.D. but is used for the medical professionals; in other countries, for example the UK, it is considered somewhat inappropriate for non-academics to use Dr. solely on the strength of a medical degree).
