I don't like Count precisely because it conjures up images of Count Dracula.

Nor do I want to be Lord, because the first thing that comes to mind is Little Lord Fauntleroy.

I've thought it over and Baron appears to be the right fit for me.


Baron conjures up Red Baron to me. And Barron Hilton, grandfather of Paris Hilton. And Baron von Münchhausen:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baron_M%C3%BCnchhausen

Even before his death, Münchhausen's reputation as a storyteller was exaggerated by several writers, giving birth to a fully fictionalized literary character usually called simply Baron Munchausen. The (fictional) Baron's exploits, usually narrated by himself, focus on his impossible achievements as a hunter, warrior, and traveler, including rides on cannonballs and trips to the moon.
