I am a little puzzled by this since Captain is not necessarily an occupation. For instance, a US NAVY Captain has the tile, and rank, Captain, but his job can be many things even chaplain or legal officer. It is true that it is not a permanent title, as he comes up the ranks he has been LTJG, LT, LCDR, CDR .. etc... so I can see where you wouldn't want it as THE title in the name. but I am not comfortable with it as "occupation" either. Then there is my husband's great-grandfather [and his great-great one too for that matter] whose occupation is "master mariner" but are called Capt. so & so.
