Titutular

On occassion a title, such as "General", has been given to a child as part of their name. "General" seems to have been used in this way most commonly. In some cases this usage is intended as an "honorific" given name (e.g., General William Campbell Edmiston was named after his father's commander during the Battle of Kings' Mountain. In other cases, an obvious "honoree" has not been found, and the presumption is that the parents simply liked the name.
