No need to curtsey

I so stole this from Jen.

Though I'm 100% Canadian now, I was born in England.

Yep, in the southeast of England, in Hastings (yes, that Hastings, as in "1066, Battle of"). I'm sure that I must have aristocratic connections somewhere in the family tree. So when I saw this -- a website where you can get your very own aristocratic title -- I was all over it. My title:

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Milady the Most Honourable Alison the Elephantine of Wallop-upon-Deane
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

This is just perfect. Not the Elephantine part, though I could stand to use a couple of pounds, but those of you who know me well will know why the town name made me laugh til I nearly peed my pants.

You should try it, it's fun. Let me know in the comments what amazingly royal personages are hanging around my blog...


  1. Milady the Right Reverend Karen the Pertinacious of Throcking by Hampton

    Ha! This title makes me sound like I beat my children in the Hamptons! Fun!

  2. Excellent work Milady.

    As for Hastings, maybe you're related to the Conqueror himself???? I have a relative who came over on the boat with King William, but I think he was just a normal soldier and not royal.

  3. Marchioness Susan the Profuse of Throcking by Hampton

    (and I so get why you thought your title was so funny...)

    And I am Milady the Most Honourable Alissa the Glutinous: of Lesser Cheese Winston. I don't like that at all.

  5. Milady the Most Honourable Sumita the Ineffable of Hopton Goosnargh

    I dont much like my title either, who're they calling ineffable (is that even a word)

    But Alison, yours is *PERFECT* I spit out my water reading it. Hilarious.

  6. Hilarious!!
    I decided to use my given much more aristocratic!

    Her Most Noble Lady Judith the Fortunate of Lardle Midhoop do they know about my ever-burgeoning muffin top??

    Ok, that's a spectacular coincidence. If only! : )

    Writeth the Very Reverend William the Flavoursome of Under Yockenthwaite

    (You can call me Father Bill the Tasty.)

    Reverend Countess Holly the Paragon of Menzies on the Minges

    So... does this okay my chocolate and crap urges this week?

  9. The Duchess of Derfwad here.

    I am Reverend Countess Rebecca the Functional of Greater Sodbury.... well at least I serve a purpose I wouldn't want to be Reverend Countess Rebecca the DYSfunctional of Greater Sodbury

    Okay, I rarely snort at the computer (with laughter, I mean), but snort I did when I saw my title. Good thing I hadn't quite gotten to the point of taking my first sip of very hot tea.

    Alison, I printed this out so you would know I hadn't made it up:

    Reverend Countess Natalie the Decent of Great Leering

    (as Becca might have said...better that than the INdecent of Great Leering!)
