Pre-fix and title spaces
Could we put the title and pre-fix spaces somewhere else besides on the line as part of the given name? Or make it so that it doesn't print on a temple card? When a title such as Dr., Rev., President, etc is put as part of the name line, it ends up as part of the name used in doing ordinances. If the prefix is Dr. then the ordinance worker/sealer has to say "D - R - period" before the name. Today, it was "R - E - V - period" because the patron didn't know if it was short for Reverend. Part of the reasoning here is that pretty sure when the parents named their child they didn't name him Dr or President or Reverend, etc. Other than royalty you wouldn't know they would grow up to have that title. I can't see George Washington's mother saying "lets name him President George Washington" But, people see those spaces and think they need to fill them in just because they are there.
