Honorifics for Knighthood
There are many and varied honorifics for Knighthood in Amtgard. Depending on the person's persona, personal quirks and gender, it is wise to know the knight in question's wishes. Many male knights, such as Diego, have chosen the traditional male Spanish honorific of Don, while some knights use still other variations, such as the modern Syr or Ser. Sir is the common male honorific for knighthood.
Some female knights use Sir, as well as the alternative, Dame. Historically, the wife of a knight was given the title of Lady. A Dame holds knighthood in her own right.
At the end of the day, it's all a matter of choice.
