You Earned It - Orion Titles

Orion Titles






A tradition passed down through the Orion clan structure for centuries, giving people titles not only helped to separate them from others of the same name (in a culture where giving out your clan name- akin to a surname- is incredibly atypical) but it also provided a sharp first impression.

You don't choose your Orion title, it's chosen for you. Be it negative or positive, wear it proudly because it means you made a mark. If you don't like your title, you'll have to earn a new one.



You are not limited to one name! The same person may be known by multiple names in various circles, have a childhood name and an adult name, etc.
Orion names typically came in three parts: a given name first, a family name second, and an honorific or nickname. The first name tended to be short; though older and prouder families might give longer names, they preferred names that were memorable and easy to pronounce. Unless very well-known and respected, family names were rarely mentioned in public, since they could identify relations, allegiances and enemies. As such, an Orion was typically known by their first name, plus any honorifics and titles they might have.

An Orion male, by the time he was an adult, would probably acquire a nickname that marked a prominent characteristic or accomplishment. A neutral or flattering honorific would generally follow the name (e.g. Nallin the Unconquerable, Hubin the Burned), while a negative one usually came first (Half-a-Man Sooris, Crazy Drelk). Orions also enjoyed any titles and distinctions that they might have earned.[Memory Beta]
