Submitted for internal commentary as Azure, in pale a pen fesswise argent and an anchor Or, this conflicted with the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantation, Azure, an anchor Or (May 1999, Laurel). With the submitter's permission this was redesigned with the submitter's permission.

4: Mirabel Sellers - New Request for Name Reconsideration

OSCAR finds the name on the Caid LoI of June 26, 2016 as submitted.

Mira Sellers

From Caid Sept 2016 LoAR

Mirabel Sellers. Name.

Nice 16th century English name!

The submitter indicated that, if her name had to be changed, the sound "Mira Sellers" was most important to her. Mira is found as a given name in early 17th century Germany. The February 2015 Cover Letter permits this given name to be combined with the 16th century English Sellers. If the submitter prefers Mira Sellers, she should submit a request for reconsideration.

Submitter would prefer Mira Sellers, and is therefore requesting reconsideration.
