For canonites with no sense of humor, Memory Alpha has created a so-called article on Lieutenant.

Lieutenant is half a captain. It was also a popular given name. Examples are:

It's a known fact that most of these officers were ensigns: no gold braid on their shoulders. Thus, the only logical conclusion allowed by cannon is that these individuals were named "Lieutenant". It was a mere fortuity that Uhura was also a Starfleet lieutenant. Further, Geordi LaForge's first name was "Lieutenant". I bet you didn't know that.

When is an ensign a lieutenant? Or a sub-lieutenant? When a canonites says so, that's when.
