Sir Michael Oppenheimer, 2nd Baronet
''Sir'' is a formal English language, English honorific address for men, derived from ''Sire'' in the High Middle Ages.

As the female equivalent for knighthood is damehood, the female equivalent term is typically Dame.

Additionally, since the late modern period, ''Sir'' has been increasingly used as a respectful way to address any commoners of a superior social status or military rank. Equivalent terms of address for women are Madam (shortened "Ma'am"), in addition to social honorifics such as Mr, Mrs, Ms., Ms and Miss.
