Title Stacking is the SCA practice of using multiple titles in order to try to fully qualify which SCA awards someone has and to which orders they belong. For example, Alexandre d'Avigne who is a member of the White Scarf, a Master of the Pelican, a Court Baron and Viceroy of Ostgardr might be called "Viceroy Baron Master Don Alexandre" while Edward Zifran of Gendy who is a triple peer as well as a Viscount might be "Viscount Sir Master Master Edward". (He's also a Court Baron, so you could toss in a "Baron," too.)

Needless to say, this can get very silly very quickly and furthermore bears little relationship to any sort of period practice. (Then again, neither does any facet of the SCA's award structure, really.)
