Proper Nouns

Proper nouns are nouns that are unique and have names, such as individual people, cities, or buildings--for example, Albert Einstein, Boston, Barton Library.

The first letter of each word in the name of a proper noun should be capitalized (except for short prepositions and articles).

Most proper nouns do not require articles. See Articles--Proper Nouns.
