English term or phrase:DOM
Next to recorder's name on Marriage Certificate from Nevada.
Explanation: Dom is a title of respect – derived from Latin "Dominus" – for certain Benedictine and Carthusian monks, for example those of the English Benedictine Congregation (e.g. Dom John Chapman, late Abbot of Downside), the female equivalent being "Dame" (e.g. Dame Laurentia McLachlan, late Abbess of Stanbrook; Dame Felicitas Corrigan, author). It is also used in French, as in Dom Pérignon and with a special use for the popes of Avignon, analogous to the Italian, Spanish and Portuguese Don or Dom.
