This morning I was visiting The Continuum, an Anglican blog and I noticed that the host, Albion Land, had something called "A Peculiar Aristocratic Title." This pretentious sounding thing immediately appealed to me, since as an Anglo-Catholic and an inveterate high-churchman it is presumed that I have a love of both pomposity and frivolity. When I saw, Mr. Land's title, "Bishop Lord Albion the Lachrymose of Withering Glance," I knew that I had to have one too!
So I went to a wonderful website that specializes in the dispensation of such titles. It's "Your Peculiar Aristocratic Title." This website will take your name and gender and give a title that is just for you. Don't like what they suggest? No problem. Keep clicking until you get one you do like.
So, are you ready for my Peculiar Aristocratic Title (and believe me, it is peculiar.)
Here it is:
"His Grace Lord Robert the Mellifluous of Lower Bumhampton"
I got this one on the first click!
Now isn't that magnificent? It's pompous, pretentious, and utterly frivolous. And I'll bet that you want a title too. Here's how you can get your own Peculiar Aristocratic Title: Click on
By the way, if you see my wife and daughter, don't forget to greet them with their new peculiar titles. My wife is henceforth known in pomposity as:
"Her Most Serene Highness Lady Mimi the Harmonious of Puddleston St. Droop"
Our daughter Melanie will henceforth frivolously be known as:
"Her Exalted Highness Duchess Melanie the Discombobulated of Pigotts Sty"
(Duchess Melanie's title took more than a few clicks to find the one that fit!)
