Many men, when going up for an aliya, tell the gabbai their name as, e.g. "Reuven ben Rav Yaakov", even if "Yaakov," the father, isn't actually a Rabbi." I believe the reason for this practice is to honor the father by not saying his name without an honorific.
Is there an honorific that's used commonly when referring to one's mother? For example, if Reuven was to ask the gabbai to mention his brother in a "Mi Shebeirach", in which one traditionally identifies the patient with his/her mother, how should he say the name? "Shim'on ben Giveret Leah"? "... Imi (my mother) Leah"?
Happy Mothers' Day!
