Clan leaders, when addressed, are called by their clan name and not their family name. For example: Octavian Bathory as the clan leader should be addressed Duke Bowman and not Duke Bathory.

Governors, when addressed, are called by the name of the city they govern and not their family name. For example, Stephen Bathory the Governor of the Rhunbarad City should be referred to as Earl Rhunbarad, Count Rhunbarad or Lord Rhunbarad, and not Lord Bathory. The exception to the rule is Aeron Perian of the Gwaithenruin clan, the Governor of Enedost, who can be referred to as Lord Perian or Marquess Enedost.

How to call a child of an important nobleman?

You always take the closest lower title. For instance, if a Count has children, they are Viscounts and Viscountesses, children of a Duke are Marquesses and Marchionesses etc.

Sagart is a title placed before the name or the position that refers to a person who has taken the holy orders and can conduct a mass, a wedding, a funeral, confess and perform other rites within the Prime religion. Sagart means priest in Irish; all Septon/Prime/Altus Knights names have been taken from Irish.

Hyung and oppa both mean older brother. However, only men can use hyung and only women can use oppa when referring to an older man.

The female equivalents are eonni (unni) which is what a female would call her older sister, nuna (noona) is what a male would call his older sister.

There is just one word for a younger brother or sister;  dongsaeng and both males and females use that word.

Maknae is a term used to refer to the youngest in a group, usually a group of friends, often used as a title in place of their name.

Sunbae is a term used to your seniors in school and work. You can be a sunbae even if you're younger as long as you entered first.

Jodija stands for a leader.

Ahjussi is an expression of respect used when calling an older man.

Ahjuma is an expression of respect used when calling an older woman.

Doryeon means young master.

Agashi means young lady.

Most of the honorific names can be attached with suffixes nim or nym, e.g. sunbaenim, oppanin, hyungnim etc. for adding even more respectful tone.

If you want to call someone Mr/Mrs/Ms, add shi at the end of the given name, e.g. Choi Tian Shen shi. If you're on first name basis with someone, add ah to their given name, e.g. Tian Shen ah. Please note that family/clan name is always put before the name in the Choi family hence Choi Tian Shen and not Tian Shen Choi.

The Choi clan's expressions are based on Korean language, however not all clans from Topeli have to be limited to one RL Asian nation only. The Nimashi and Ryn clans, judging on their names, could use Japanese honorifics as in:

shi = san (if you know the person)
shi = shi (if you don't know the person)
jodiga = sama
dongsaeng = kohai (but used more in a formal context)
agashi = chan
doryeon = kun
sunbae = senpai (for senior colleagues)
sunbae = sensei (for senior colleagues who hold a higher rank)
oppa/hyun = nichan
unni/noon = nechan
Dono means lord/master.
Senpai calls a younger person kohai.
Sensei calls a person of lower rank hakase.

I simplified the above Japanese and Korean expressions so please remember that their translations in RL are not exactly as I organized them! Go to the given links if you want to learn more about Korean and Japanese honorifics.

Wang - King
Yeo Wang - Queen
Wang Ja - Prince
Gong Ju - Princess
Jeon Ha - Your Majesty when addressing the King
Ma Ma - Your Majesty when addressing the Queen
Woodalchi - Royal Guards/Warriors
Dae Jang - general

Insam cha - ginseng tea for colds.
Danggwi cha - angelica tea for women.
Saenggang cha - ginger tea.
Jigoku - a kind of an afterlife hell ruled by the judger of souls called Enma Daiou/Yan-Lo/King Yemma.
Meido - afterlife.
Mudang - a spiritual guide, a man from the Choi clan who possesses the power over spirits of both lands; the one of the living and the one of the dead.
