SCA Titles and Alternatives

In the SCA, gentles are granted specific titles for use based on awards received and/or positions held. An ever-growing list of researched, period-accurate non-English and gender-neutral titles is available.

Alternate titles can be used as soon as you receive your Award of Arms, that traditionally has granted the titles of “Lord” or “Lady.” Common gender-neutral options are Armiger or Noble. Armiger is used following a name: Richard, Armiger; and Noble is used before a name: Noble Richard.

The College of Arms is currently researching period-accurate non-gendered titles for all ranks in the SCA, and many are found at the link below, along with options from various languages of the Middle Ages.
