If, for instance, we translated it literally as "one who is praised" maybe a compound like hered-man or gehered-man might work (hered/gehēred/gehiered being forms of the past participle of herian "to praise")...? Unfortunately I'm not much versed in the rules of OE compounding.
Couldn't you just use the past participle, like we do in modern English?
