Interesting Titles on Bookings Page

Just completed another booking online (not the one in the other thread I just posted).

On the pax details screens, there's a drop down box for titles. Makes very interesting reading. Among the routine: Mr, Mrs, Wing Commander, His Holiness (I kid you not), and Lords, there are a number of new ones to me. Anyone know what the following titles are?:

Khun Ying
Lcda
Haja
Gravin
Eur Ing
Datuk
Puan
Teuku
Tun

Hi,
Using www.google.co.uk,

Khun Ying appears to be a Thai Title;
