"M" does not appear to be an attributed honorific at this time, but I can see it becoming one in the future, especially as the only gender-neutral example provided at wikipedia.com the article titled "Honorific" is Mx. To my ear, the adoption of this honorific would be akin to sounding a short burst of angle-grinder in the middle of string sonata.


My first (and only) exposure to "M" as an honorific was in Dan Simmons' Hyperion Cantos where it was always followed by a period (M.). I am unable to tell from context if the "M" in M. Simmons' writing is an abbreviation for a full word, as "Mr." is for Mister, if it is spoken as "em", and I don't believe I encountered any instance in the Cantos where Simmons used a pluralized version to refer to more than one person, as Messrs. is the plural form of Mr.

I've recently made a decision to try to use "M" in written correspondence, and I would also be greatly pleased to have "M" (sounds like «em») become a spoken ambisexual honorific.
