I was looking at the list of Knights on here and a thought went through my head when I was reading the names with "Knight" preceding them.

Could the Knights of TOTJO technically use "Sir" (male), and "Lady" (female) as prefixes?

For example

"Sir Wescli Wardest"

or

"Lady V-Tog"

(Optionally, many of the members' real names seem to sound wonderful with these prefixes too ;) )

Would or could these be considered correct prefixes for TOTJO Knights?

Could this legally, or otherwise (in whatever official way) be used out in the world when referring to one's position in TOTJO?

Just curious. :)

It seems that I know that I know.
What I would like to see is the 'I' that knows me when I know that I know that I know.

That would be a good idea in my opinion...Sir Proteus ;)

I guess you 'could' use it but not 'legally' ? We'd have to see what Br. John says.

Haha I don't remember anyone asking that before!

I would guess not, but I have no idea really...

It wouldn't be legally binding. Only Specific organisations recognised by the government can issue people with 'proper' knighthoods

TotJO can create Reverends and give out degrees of divinity but that's it

I'd like to see the government interfere with a church's internal affairs.

Plus, this is the UK. You can change your legal name to "Sir Arthur Pendragon".

As ren mentioned, you can call yourself whatever you want but that doesn't mean it will be recognised by anyone else!

The use of such prefixes are regulated by each country and recognised internationally as a result. We can only issue the prefix of "Reverend" and the suffix of "OCP" as standard.

So what about the title of "Knight" used now? Is it simply a TOTJO exclusive title then?

It seems that I know that I know.

It's not a title as such, but a way of mentioning rank. It's in no way compulsory.

For instance, you could call me "Grandmaster Mark" but there's really no need to! :D
