I suppose you mean suffix in the context of name.

Example: Last Name, First Name, Middle Initial, Suffix

This would refer to things like Jr., Sr, of III

James A. Smith, III (The suffix would be III)

Richard B. Jones, Jr. (The suffix would be Jr.)

Suffix refers to words like Jr., Sr., or a numeral at the end of your name.

A name suffix, in the Western English_languagenaming tradition, follows a person's full Nameand provides additional information about the person. Post-nominal_lettersindicate that the individual holds a position, educational degree, accreditation, office or honour. ie, BA, MA etc. It might also refer to honoury rank such as KG ( knight of the Garter ) or OBE, MBE or simply a style of address such as esquire

A suffix is a letter or group of letters that is added to the end of a word to change its meaning or to form a different word. On an application form, a suffix may be requested after a person's last name. This could be used to indicate a person's marital status, for example, by adding "- Jr." for a son with the same name as his father, or "- II" for a second person with the same name as a relative. Some other common suffixes that may be requested on an application form include "- Esq." for an attorney, and "- PhD" for a person with a doctorate degree.

I believe this applies to males only, examples are: Sr. = Senior, if you are the father of a son who has the same first and last name as you. Jr. = Junior, if you are the son of a father who has the same first and last name as you. Or potentially a roman numeral after the last name, such as John Smith, III which means, "John Smith the third" as in you are the third person in your immediately family with the name John Smith. If neither of these apply to you, leave the suffix field blank.

Suffix, on an employment application usually means: Sr., Jr., I, II, III, IV or V most of the time.
