Webcast Naming

Postby johnshaw » Sun Oct 03, 2010 5:05 pm

In people's experience with overlaying names, I'm trying to figure out what the best naming for the Mission President's wife would be. We have both the Mission President, and the Temple President (and wives) speaking at the first webcast we'll be doing with the overlay.

Here is what I was thinking

First M (I) Last
President, Mission

First Last
Mission

First M (I) Last
President, Temple

First Last
Matron, Temple

What have others done, the Mission President's wife seems a little funny to me.

For the mission president's wife, I would put

Sister First Last
Ohio Cleveland Mission

Adding the "Sister" removes the awkwardness, since she has no other official title.

Personally, I'd reverse the order. It seems awkward.

But I think the proposed order matches the way the Church generally does things (e.g., in General Conference you see "Richard C. Edgley, First Counselor, Presiding Bishopric"). At least, that is, if the word "Mission" in the proposal stands for the full name of the mission, and same for the temple. So it would be something like:

John Doe
President, Ohio Cleveland Mission

Sister Jane Doe
Ohio Cleveland Mission

James Roe
President, North Dakota Bismarck Temple

Jeanne Roe
Matron, North Dakota Bismarck Temple

When you put the full name of the mission or temple, then I think that proposed order works well.

Ah, I took it at face value. Yes, with the full name it does work.

I did mean the full name of the misson and temple. Thanks everyone, this makes sense to me as well.
