Here's a suggestion for perhaps the knight/dame level though it sounds like you already have a lot of good choices.  Deacon

Don't know if it's any good, but thought I'd throw it out since I don't think anyone else has suggested it yet.

I like the "lord, lady, laurel"   "knight, dame, patron". "satyr, siren, sidhe". "god, goddess, deity" scheme... It adds what's been missing without changing everything all around.

I like this one as well.

Puuuurfect. I'll be switching over to the third option as soon as its available.

As for the the titles, I've liked Laurel, Guardian, and Sidhe (especially) out of the bunch. To my knowledge, those born as both genders were looked upon highly in Native American (and some others) culture. There might be a few titles you can pluck from that as well.

Already looked there.  The best terms of the lot were 'Two-Spirit' (Native American) and 'Kinnar' (a term for one of the devas in India) which, while very positive terms, are kind of jarring in conjunction with 'Lord', 'Lady', et. al.

I like Kinnar, though... Very pretty word. I don't recall what the devas were, but would that be a possibility for Knight/Dame, or a Deity title (instead of just 'Deity', which I find rather bland and which we use as a plural term for the all-of-us already)?

Deva means something like "shining one" -- it's usually compared to about the level of angel in Christian mythology, but they're really more like nature spirits.  I don't think they're quite deities (as far as I know), but it is a pretty word.

I agree with this, practical and sounds pretty as well.

I prefer liege over laurel because of what daylily said about the meaning of laurel.

Liege sounds better fitting than Laurel to me. Liege is a pretty wellknown word. Laurel is not in the context it's planning on being used, and much more common as a girl's name.

Hmm, so "lord, lady, liege", "knight, dame, patron", "satyr, siren, sidhe", "god, goddess, deity"

That rhymes nicely still.

What do we need to do to get the new gender tag?

Still, shouldn't there be a third, 'Other' gender option for profiles as well?

That hasn't been configured yet. For now, those who would like to identify themselves as 'Other' should ask for the Liege tag, if they're comfortable with doing so.

I'm sure Veks will implement it in the future.
