    I'd say Dutch Semi-Bold. I love that font.

    Fenice, Footlight, Engravers Roman, Palatino, Baskerville Oldstyle, Zapf Humanist, Baker Signet, Bernhard Modern, Bulmer, De Vinne, Industrial 736, Leawood...to name a few.

    Esoteric :thumb: for a bolder look than the ones listed above.

    Doctors tend to be very conservative and formal. I would look among your fonts for an old style serif font such as Palatino, Garamond or Goudy etc.

    Just don't use Times or Copperplate ... entirely too commonly used.

    I think of a professional's identity on say a door or glass entrance window. The first thing that come to my mind is Palatino.

    Ever since i asked for a font recognition and it turned out to be Trajan ... Im seeing it ALL OVER THE PLACE !!!

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    Try the name in different fonts as the letter shapes and the way they relate to each other may determine which looks the best.
