Python String title: Complete Introduction

The title() function in python is used to convert the first character in each word to an uppercase and remaining characters to Lowercase in the string and returns a new string.

Python String title()

Python title() is a built-in string handling function that returns a string in which the first letter of the words present in the string is uppercase, and all the other letters of the word are lowercase. If the string contains symbols and numbers, then the 1st number after it is converted to uppercase. We also call the words that have the first letter as uppercase and all other letters as lowercase title cased.



Here, the string is a variable that is converted to be title-cased.


The title() method doesn’t take any parameter and throws an error if any parameter is passed. It is used with a string using a dot operator, and the output string is shown.

Return Value

The method returns a string in which the characters of the words are title-cased.

Example programs on the title() method

Write a program to show the working of the title() method.


h1 = "helLo BoYYSSS ANDD gIRLS"
h2 = "I am A BARCA FAN!"
h3 = "I lOvE StRaNgEr ThInGs"
h4 = "I loVe LeaRNinG fRoM aPpDivIdeNd"
h5 = "I lOvE PyThOn"

print("Original string: ", h1)
print("title(): ", h1.title(), "\n")
print("Original string: ", h2)
print("title(): ", h2.title(), "\n")
print("Original string: ", h3)
print("title(): ", h3.title(), "\n")
print("Original string: ", h4)
print("title(): ", h4.title(), "\n")
print("Original string: ", h5)
