Since they're not dead yet, just translated, are they (Enoch and Elijah) referred to as Saints?

I don't imaging Adolf is very popular.
Would you like to shake hands with Pope 1 or Pope 2 -

Yes: they're St Elias and St Henoch. In the Eastern Churches, they're given the moniker or title of 'saint'. There's a St Elijah or St Elias Melchite Catholic Church about an hour or so away from me.

I have a nephew named Francis, named before Pope Francis was elected.  I actually once thought someone was talking about the Pope when they were really talking about my nephew.  It would be even more embarrassing to explain the exact context.

[Matthew 8:26]  And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm.

[Job  38:1-5]  Then the Lord answered Job out of a whirlwind, and said: [2] Who is this that wrappeth up sentences in unskillful words? [3] Gird up thy loins like a man: I will ask thee, and answer thou me. [4] Where wast thou when I laid up the foundations of the earth? tell me if thou hast understanding. [5] Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?

Jesus, Mary, I love Thee! Save souls!
