NounEdit

père ‎(plural pères)

  1. A priest of the Roman Catholic Church, especially a French one. Also used as a title preceding the name of such a priest.
  2. Sr. - Used after a proper name that is common to a father and his son to indicate that the father is being referred to rather than the son; junior, fils.

Usage notesEdit

  • Current usage of differentiating fathers and sons is borrowed from French; hence this term follows the name as it does in French grammar.
