Capitalization of Proper Nouns



A proper noun is a noun that names a specific person, place, or thing. ALL proper nouns deserve to begin with a capital letter.

These are the kind of nouns that are proper and should ALWAYS have a capital letter:
- First and last names (i.e. John Smith, Emily Jones)
- Place names (i.e. schools, churches, cities, parks, states, restaurants, countries)
-Specific names of things (i.e. car makes and models, pet names, brand names of products, book titles, song titles, months of the year, days of the week, street names)

Proper nouns are the only nouns special enough to have their first letter stand tall!
