Even if Padma's father did get the title for marrying
the princess, Ivan is "Lord Vorpatril" because he has
inherited that title, he isn't called that just as a
honorific because he is the Emperors second(?) cousin.

As for other reasons behind the title, Padma's father
or grandfather might also have been heroes of the
resistance.
Or maybe the grandfather got the title for service to
industry in the interval between the rediscovery and
the Cetagendan invasion, or perhaps...
