Why does one think that adding prefixes to their names increases their holiness?
Please excuse me if it hurts your feeling, that is not the intent.

Satguru, Swami Vivekananda, Baba Ramdev, Mata Amritanandamayi, Rajinder Singh, Radhanath Swami, Gaur Gopal Das - there's no Sri in it

Point - It's we who tend to think more the "Sri" more the holiness which is capitalized. Once there's no demand, there's no more supply :)

Shri in Sanskrit is used to denote Mr.
Shrimati is to denote Mrs.

So for eg if a persons name is Goundamani..in Sanskrit he would be addressed as Shri Goundamani.

Its just a neutral terminology.

In Arabic a Sayeed is used to denote Mr
Sayeeda to denote Mrs.
So in Arabic, Goundamani would be addressed as Sayeed Goundamani.
