The intent is for an award rather than an order.  The award confers a 
military rank as well as an armigerous rank.  The military rank is "Optio" 
(essentially an NCO or Sergeant level position).

Latin is desired for the whole name.

Of the form options shown by Mari (I love that page on the Laurel site by 
the way), something like Group + Group, or Group + Place, seems most 
desireable.  My Latin is horrible so I will say "Optio Ansteorrae" or more 
directly (translate as needed) "Optio of Legio Ansteorrae" would be the 
desire formation.
