I have a Roman name for my second persona which I considered late
Empire, and it was registered with no problem. I'm wondering if the
time of earlier "order" names will be a problem?
The only stuff I found for Optio and Optionis while Googling was
computer programing, a Pentax camera, a research company, and a Star
