Words to Your Mother: Certitude

Certitude means the state of being certain.  Effectively, it is pretty much the same as certainty.  However, Princeton University's Wordnet identifies certitude as "total certainty or greater certainty than circumstances warrant", so you might use it as a more emphatic (or slightly sardonic) version of certainty.
