I really enjoy playing a Dawnbringer, but it's always been on servers that start your character out at the 3rd level.
As a first level character, I really doubt they would be considered a Dawnbringer as that is the title given to full priests. I have a source, and I'm not sure where it came from, that lists the level of clergy. It follows:
Awakened: novice clerics Dawnbringer: Full priest
Then they advance in rank. Dawngreeter Dawnlord High Dawnlord Dawnmaster Morninglord High Morninglord Morningmaster High Morningmaster Sunrise Lord
I was questioned by a Dawnbringer tonight about what an Awakened is (which is cool and I'm not complaining at all ) but I don't wish to overstep things here. I rped (well I crashed so I'm not sure if she heard it or not) that Shana's Morninglord mentor in Silverymoon called her an Awakened.
Was this correct? Or are these levels way off base. I've searched Wizard's and the source books I have but haven't been able to find anything about it.
While I wasn't aware of these different titles, I do really like them and think that it adds a lot of depth to the faith. I'd suggest getting together in game with Lydia again and perhaps the two of you can really get something going with this
I didn't find the info in my source books but I did find this -

In Faiths and Pantheons (pg. 38), it says "The church recognizes no central authority; the head of each temple is afforded similar respect by followers everywhere. Clerics refer to one another as Dawnbringers."
To this end, I would say any other title would be likely be more specific to individual churches. I've heard Lathanderite clerics sometimes refer to themselves as Morninglords but I'm not sure the origin of that title except that it may be a prestige class in a book I don't have. The title Morninglord always sounded a bit pretentious to me on the grounds that Lathander himself is The Morninglord.
Edit: Ah, I see on the Wikipedia page the source is Faiths & Avatars. Not sure how current information in that source is.
