Art/Literary - Names (personal, company) / German name prefixes
German term or phrase: Vor-, Zwischen-, Nachsatz
I a German name like "Graf Heinrich von der Linde, Junior"

The "Graf" is called the Vorsatz, the Zwischensatz is the "von der" part and the Nachsatz is "Junior". Are there English names for these?

Explanation:
Three terms that might be useful are: prefix, suffix and attribute. But I don't have a complete solution.

Names containing a preposition (von, van), article (le), combination of article and preposition (du, vander), relationships or attributes (Fitz, Mac, Jun., III) have the format common to their country of origin. It is therefore recommended to search for names with the supplements placed in front of the name and after the name.

Would Graf be the honorific?
