Wow, this relatively minor issue is really getting around ;-)

IMO "eiland Man" would be incorrect as putting "eiland" in front implies 
that it _is_ part of the name and in that case it should be capitalized. 

I can also not think of any other example where something similar is done, 
while I can think of cases where you have, for example "XXX (republiek)" 
or "XXX, republiek". In this case I don't think using a comma would be 
correct though.
