More Information

For example, in the ceremony to induct new members into the Order of the Bat'leth (betleH 'obe'), the highest honor that the government bestows on a Klingon, the presiding official, usually the leader of the Klingon High Council, first reads a name from the naD tetlh (Commendation List), always calling out the inductee's name in the most formal way (given name plus father's name, such as tI'vIS barot puqloD [T'vis, son of Barot]). (KGT p. 182)
