Decisions, decisions Mar 15

Now that I have helped to highlight to curious correlation between Labour donors and people receiving honours by purchasing a virtual peerage, I need to decide what title to take upon my virtual elevation.

Suggestions so far include:

  • Baron Greenback
  • Baron Knights
  • Baron Landscape (geddit?)
  • Baron Howells (of course)
  • Baron Howells of Course
  • Baron Howells of Gallifrey (not suggested by me)
  • Baron Will (à la Geraint Howells) of the Weald
  • Baron Will o’ the Wisp
  • Baron Howells of teh Internets

Further suggestions in the comments, please. I also need ideas for a motto. My current favourite is ad orbis ephemeris publico, which I suspect is a grammatical monstrosity.

And don’t forget to buy your own vPeerage.

  3. What’s the DDS code for life peerages?

    929.72 is for royal houses, peerages, etc., in the UK and Ireland. Not specific to life peerages though, and more about the history of families.

    328.41 is about the UK legislative process; 328.31 is upper houses generally. We classify reform of the House of Lords at 328.41071.

    Given that most Barons are known as “The Lord…” how about The Lord Will Smite My Enemies?
