There will be no chairman or chairwoman in front of Janet Yellen's name when she becomes the first woman to head the Federal Reserve on Feb. 1.

Her preference will be Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet Yellen. Her decision is consistent with the title she used in the Fed's No. 2 job, when she was referred to as Fed Vice Chair Janet Yellen.
