Hello to all,
I think that we as medievalists understand the religious suffix to the name
better than others, it was and most likely still is a question of
belonging, as was true with all medieval names of the upper classes. What I
don't know iw whether these religious suffixes are considered part of the
legal name. Anyone who has spent a lifetime serving in one of these orders
knows what the folks who wrote the application for admissions to my
graduate school did not know when they wrote:
"Please give full name without honorific titles such as Sister."
