comment What is the meaning “It is permitted us to know …”
The same thing probably applies: the desire to produce an accurate translation where the indirect object pronoun exists in the original in some form.

comment Is headcanon a legitimate word?
Why is that UD definition "highly questionable"? The word canon is certainly relevant; and a headcanon only exists definitively in someone's head. It may be jargon, but jargon is not "illegitimate" -- even if there were a body which could rule on "legitimacy".

comment Why is Lord Alfred Tennyson often written as Alfred Lord Tennyson?
@JamesRyan The monarch is Supreme Governor of the Church of England. But the monarch is not part of the peerage (even as Duke of Lancaster and Duke of Normandy).

comment Why is Lord Alfred Tennyson often written as Alfred Lord Tennyson?
@JamesRyan English peerages are not part of the Church; the Lords Spiritual are, but once archbishops retire they may accept a Lords Temporal title.

comment Does the word “namespace” officially exist?
There is no such thing as "official English" -- but inclusion in a dictionary indicates that the word is or has been at least fairly widely used. A dictionary is always the first port of call.

comment Why is Lord Alfred Tennyson often written as Alfred Lord Tennyson?
@Glen_b tchrist is correct; in the UK it still perfectly normal to refer to given name as "Christian name" and those of other faiths are quite used to it. However, in deference to what is apparently required in other English-speaking cultures I'm prepared to change it. I dislike "given name". What do you suggest instead?

You may be looking for "epithet" but please see the tag wiki for a checklist of what this sort of question should contain. There isn't really enough information here.
