Boiarin (pronounced bo-yar-een) - for ranks from AoA to Bestowed PoA

You don't have to pick just one.

For myself, I've been using Dominus since I got my AoA. I like it (in part because a putative ancestor so styled himself in Henry's time) and it's appropriate. Think of it as having a menu to choose from, depending on how you feel today.

I like both of the last two. :) Wish I could be of more help, but I'm stuck at "Lady", and am quite happy to stay that way, so I haven't looked into anything else.

Kinda depends on whether you want to go for rank or the sound of the words, I suppose.... I like the sound of "Posadnik" (and people would more likely figure out how to pronounce it more easily) but if you want to go for the rank and the Slavik-ness, then Boiarin. It's going to be harder to teach people how to say it, though, and people are most likely going to revert to "Master." Creatures of habit, we are.

The one you can teach a bunch of Americans to say
