What Do I Need to Capitalize (titles)



Capitalize titles that precede a name, but do not capitalize titles that follow a name:


Mayor Stacy White; Stacy White, the mayor

Queen Elizabeth; Elizabeth, the queen of England

You will see this often with corporate titles. Our tendency is to capitalize all titles:


Accounting Manager Martha Grant; Martha Grant, manager of accounting

The titles of books, movies, and other works are capitalized except for articles, short conjunctions, and short prepositions:


“Pirates of the Caribbean”

“When We Were Romans”
