A relatively small (but active) group of residents and friends of the Independent State of Caledon use titles. Some of these titles have been granted to the holder by another, some reflect various levels of authority or power, and some are used solely for the fun of it. Whatever the origin of an individual's title, in most social situations in Caledon residents out of courtesy attempt to address others as they wish to be addressed.

As noted in Sir Edward Pearse's aetheric journal, it is a common practice in Caledon to refer to women as "Miss" or "Miss Surname" until one knows that they prefer something else.

In order to assist newcomers to Caledon, this list is presented in alphabetical order by first name. Where a preferred form of address is known, it is added in parentheses after the name. Square brackets enclose explanatory material.

This list does not include military, civic, or professional titles.

(A note concerning The Library Militant: the obligatory vows are Literacy, Obstinancy, and Bibliomancy, but the Order is also strongly governed by custom. While there is no formal vow of Humility, custom dictates that Knights Commander eschew the use of courtesy titles in address, unless their lands and territories independently entitle them to same.)
