Thank you one and all.  He is willing to use a close name and just be called
Orin by those who know him.  So I guess Ormr may have to be his registerable
I will find out his thoughts on it.

Academy report 552 said "We couldn't find any conclusive information
about "Orin." It's a rare modern name but we couldn't find the
source--it could come from the Hebrew word for "tree," it could be a
variation of "Aaron," or it could be a modern English form of the
Irish name "Odhrán" ("á" represents an accented "a"). However, we
weren't able to find any medieval examples or "Orin."
