    Always use 'Mr.', 'Mrs.' etc with the surname, never with the forename.

    There are instances where it is acceptable to use a title with just a forename. Children, for example, often use the title 'Miss' when speaking to/about their teacher. "Miss Connie told us to go to the computer lab." "I gave the books to Johnny, Paula, and Miss Connie."
