Just that really.

Can't decide. Think I know a couple of people who would love being called a Lord or Lady.

Would you find it naff if you were on the receiving end?

God yes,

Are you David Cameron?

If it is an actual title bought by large bung to a political party then I would say not really naff, but unethical. If it is one of the cheap one where you buy 1 sq foot of land on someones estate and a title, then it is naff IMO

But they might feel differently.

Beyond naff.

Depends if they would think its a laugh or not!

I did once meet someone who called themselves lady x having bought one of these.

Not only naff but also pointless. It's pretty much impossible to buy a title and most websites that sell them are scams.

utterly shock

I would, but if you know them and think they would love it, then go for it!

And, Zombie has received one...

Well, I would find it naff for me.

Ha! Just thought-I would be LadyBoys!!!

But the couple I'm thinking of are in their early 20's-don't know if that makes a difference.

Thanks for your honesty mnrs!

I would absolutely hate it tbh!

Some people like it, I know someone who isn't wealthy but thinks they should be and doesnt come from a really posh family, but thinks he is really posh grin - he'd love it

Oh Lordy! that is Extremely naff. In fact I think it's a naff title to use even if it is a proper inherited title. It should only be used by people elected or fairly appointed to a role such as the Lord Mayor of London.
I do not like inherited titles of any kind. I don't want anyone Lording over me just because they were born into a titled family.

I think I'd rather be a Baron!

Em, yes! But if you know their sense of humour then why not?

AuraofDora Sat 22-Sep-12 21:12:25

very much so, unless the title was Lord or Lady Naff, then that is quite cool
realistically I cant see it being the start of a meteoric rise into society life either
my sister seriously consider buying a Contessa title, even she thought better of it, in the end

Unspeakably so

It's all eco and green, actually. A way to protect the land from developers, and to maintain and improve it now.

what a hoot
I'd buy one

I would so love to buy one of these for my dc.

I am naff though and I don't care smile

Where would a naff person such as myself get one of these?
