Dewi Sant must be an exception as far as word order. Could someone please explain?

Dewi Sant is the exception. It can be taken to mean Dewi the Saint in the same way that you may come across other historical figures such as Hywel Dda (Hywel the Good) or Idwal Foel (Idwal the Bald) - someone rather more than a common or garden saint/good person/bald person of the times.
