    Default What's this conversation all about?

    A: Did you hear that Thomas Green was knighted by the Queen of England last week?

    B: That's quite an achievement.


    Question: What should we call Thomas Green now?
    (1)Man of the year. (The Man in the Moon? )
    (2)Sir Thomas Green.
    (3)Mr. Thomas Green.
    (4)Duke Thomas Green.


    I don't who's who. But then how can I make a good guess?

    Sir used before the name of a man who is a KNIGHT or BARONET

    Thanks, FRC and Lara Craft. Is graveyard shift a killer? :)

    You call a knight Sir + first name, so he'd be Sir Thomas. As one who doesn't believe in these honours, I'd call him Mr Greene. ;-0
