Admin Handbook section III.3. Permission to Conflict - The owner of
any item may allow the registration of a specific submission that
would otherwise conflict, as long as the new item is not identical to
the registered one. A letter of permission to conflict must accompany
the submission of the new item. (See Appendix D for a standard letter
of permission to conflict.)

Any item.

My favourite notorious permission to conflict was given by a friend to
another lady:

>From the June 1995 LoAR, Acceptances, East:

Morag NicMhaolain. Name.
The submitter has received a letter of permission to conflict from
Moreach nic Mhaolain.

So yes, permission can be given for names, too.
