According to the dictionary, "Mrs." originated out of an abbreviation for "Mistress" and "Missus" (which is what I was going to change this article to) is informal... So I guess "Mrs." is all we can do for it. --Schrei 05:17, 30 Sep 2005 (UTC)

  • Well, we should still use a non-abbreviated qualifier for the name, to conform - that's why we don't have Loomis (Capt.), and why we have Loomis (24th century). --Alan del Beccio 05:22, 30 Sep 2005 (UTC)
    • Then it should be Missus since Misses is just a typo. --Schrei 05:24, 30 Sep 2005 (UTC)
      • Script wins, seems to be a fluke, even my dictionary somehow manages to pronounce "Mrs." as "mis'iz; miz'iz; miz" without even giving an unabbreviated defination of the term other than: "title put in front of a married woman's name". Hey, at least we know she was married! --Alan del Beccio 05:28, 30 Sep 2005 (UTC)
        • Yeah, like I said, it apparently meant mistress when it was first used... Which makes as much sense as actress when you think about it from a Vulcan point of view, but throw in the connotations "mistress" carries today and you definitely have some ambiguity. :) --Schrei 05:39, 30 Sep 2005 (UTC)
