  1. Younger

    Younger is a Scottish convention, style of address or description traditionally used by the Heir Apparent to:- 1. A current Laird 2. Someone whose name includes a territorial designation 3. A Scottish chieftainship 4. A clan chief. 5. A Scottish Baron, only if also a Laird and recognised by the Lord Lyon as such. The style of using the term "Younger" applies equally to a woman who is heir in her own right as to a man. The style of "Younger" is neither a title of nobility nor a peerage and does not carry voting rights either in the Parliament of Scotland or the Kingdom of England. The abbreviation of Younger is Yr. The wife of such an heir may adopt this style also. When a person bearing this suffix becomes the Laird in their own right or succeeds to the arms of a now landless family or inherits the chieftainship of a cadet branch or the chiefship of the clan, they then drop the suffix and the next heir apparent may add the style to their name.

    Fishkin told Fox News. SCIENTISTS DISCOVER POTENTIAL CURE FOR GRAY HAIR Fishkin said her mother started going gray when she was 18, so she knew there was a good chance she would follow the same silver path. After 12 years of dyeing her hair every four to six weeks, Fishkin decided to accept her silver tresses. I get compliments every day, it really makes me who I am. I love the brightness of it, I think it really matches me really well. Women like Fishkin are not alone in their silver journey. Celebrities like Jamie Lee Curtis and Helen Mirren were some of the first to embrace full silver. And now younger women like Kendall Jenner, Pink and Lady Gaga have followed suit. We’re talking about the last five years the silver trend has been going on, and I'm amazed at how many women actually look really great with silver hair, Massey said.
