I always found that offending The Chivalry is not sufficient reason to stop
doing something - tho it may be sufficient reason to start!  I shall follow
Alfredo's example, differentiating always among knights errant (ie
"unbelted" fighters), squires (ie squires), knights of the Laurel (ie
Laurels), knights of the Pelican (ie Pelicans) and knights of the Chivalry
(ie white-belted fighters).  It's immediately simpler, more authentic and
more symmetrical - and it'll annoy the pretentious and amuse the amusing:
an ideal design!
