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 
Wars gaming site.
