Remember the old “society” columns that used to populate the nation’s newspapers? (Actually, the Philadelphia Inquirer still publishes one: “Social Scene,” by Pauline Pinard Bogaert, of which this is the latest.)

And do you recall how they used to refer to married women? Like this: Mrs. Preston Hayes (Bitsy) Worthington III.

In such an era “ubiquitous socialite” Paris Hilton, following her marriage to “Greek shipping heir” Paris Latsis, to whom she has become engaged, would be known as Mrs. Paris (Paris) Latsis.

Assuming the whole thing comes off. And lasts.
