It isn’t as if we have yet lost all awareness of the social significance of modes of address, though that day might yet come. For the moment, people are still aware of the differences between calling someone “Bill” or “Jones” or “Mr Jones”. Theodore Dalyrmple. Please don’t call me Theo

Note: I once worked at a nursing center, where one patient’s first name was “Doctor.”  He was a lawyer.
