I have Scrum Master certifications from the Scrum Alliance and I'm not aware of any other SM certifications, though I haven't really looked.

What I can tell you is that most employers and clients couldn't care less about them, reputation-wise. You should take a certification as part of your own personal development. Build your own reputation based on the knowledge and experience you get. Don't take a certification thinking that reputation comes with it.

I've seen great Scrum Master without any certifications and bad Scrum Master with all the "right" certifications.
A certification doesn't examine the actual quality that is needed for a Scrum Master.
