Yes. Depending on the Church, the titles may vary. For instance, the UGCC Calendar I shared uses 'Priest-Martyr' for (obviously! LOL!) a Priest Martyr, whereas many Churches use the Greek term 'Hieromartyr'. Saints like Constantine and Volodomir the Great, who were instrumental in converting whole peoples, are sometimes called 'Equal to the Apostles' or Enlightener of Nations'
