Naming Conventions

  • Main principle: name as close to original as possible.
  • Maiden Name as family name where known to disambiguate multiple partners
  • Place names in suffix to disambiguate different branches of the family
  • If "Sir" is desired, please place in parentheses in middle name field.
  • "Lord" should only be used if there is a specific honour (Lord of ____), in which case this should be placed in the suffix
  • If names of French origin contain "de" please place this in the last name field (e.g., de Audley)
  • Alternate spellings of the surname as found in historical sources may be placed in the Maiden Name field (available for men by temporarily switching gender, while in Edit Profile mode)
