A Note About Minbari Naming ConventionsMinbari do not normally use their full names when interacting. Out of a population of more than three billion, however, it's a given that there will be more than one 'Delenn' or 'Lennier'. In situations calling for more detailed identification, a Minbari will provide a clan/guild name along with his or her given name - 'Delenn' becomes 'Delenn Mir' or, more formally, 'Delenn ra'Mir' ('ra' means 'of'). When establishing a social hierarchy is required, such as a formal ceremony with many attendees, a Minbari will give their title as well - 'Min'entil Delenn ra'Mir' (Ambassador Delenn of Clan Mir). This naming convention applies to both Worker and Religious Caste. For Warriors, the honorific 'Zhaden' (Warrior) is used instead of a title - for example: 'Zhaden Shakiri ra'Vonilbok'. Unlike human family names, however, shared Minbari clan/guild names do not necessarily mean that the bearers are physically related.unknown
