What is the prefix in a name?
Prefixes are entered in the Prefix title field, NOT in any of the name fields. If no prefix is provided, the default is Mr or Ms. 4. In situations where both a prefix and a suffix could be used ie. Dr. and , MD the value should be added in the Prefix field which would leave the Suffix field blank.
These can be titles prefixing a person's name, e.g.: Mr, Mrs, Miss, Ms, Sir, Dr, Lady or Lord, or titles or positions that can appear as a form of address without the person's name, as in Mr President, General, Captain, Father, Doctor or Earl.
- 'Miss' should be used when referring to an unmarried woman, while “Mrs." is the proper title for a married woman. Many are often confused about the correct usage of “Ms.", which does not depend on marital status at all and can be used as a title for both unmarried and married women.
- It is also preferred to write out a person's title when addressing a letter and abbreviations such as Prof. or Acad. are best avoided. An exception is Dr. for Doctor, which is still acceptable in the salutation. If the recipient has multiple titles, generally only the most important one is used.
- Sir is an honorific address used in a number of situations in many anglophone cultures. The term can be used as a formal prefix, especially in the Commonwealth, for males who have been given certain honours or titles (such as knights and baronets), where usage is strictly governed by law and custom.
Rule 5 Personal Names With Titles and Suffixes. When used with a person's name a title or a suffix is the last indexing unit when needed to distinguish between two or more identical names. Titles and suffixes are indexed as written. Titles include Capt., Dr., Mayor, Miss, Mr., Mrs., Ms., and Senator .
- A suffix (also called ending) is an affix that is placed after the stem of a word. Common examples are case endings, which indicate the grammatical case of nouns or adjectives, and verb endings, which form the conjugation of verbs.
- Someone can use both the “Sr.” or “Jr.” suffix and/or a Roman numeral suffix if they so wish. If our Barnabas Ludwig Johnson II below and his son, Barnabas Ludwig Johnson III, are both still alive, then the former can be called “II” and/or “Sr.”, while the latter can be called “III” and/or “Jr.”
- a suffix meaning “capable of, susceptible of, fit for, tending to, given to,” associated in meaning with the word able, occurring in loanwords from Latin (laudable); used in English as a highly productive suffix to form adjectives by addition to stems of any origin (teachable; photographable).

- The first set of numbers (4 digits) is your branch (transit) number. The second set (7 digits) is your account number.
