Correction (2013-Feb-11 09:02:14): The name is a resubmission not an appeal. Though similar it has been completely changed to documentable elements. The original submission <Lilith of the Northern Wood> was returned on my July 2012 ILoAR.

Correction (2013-Feb-11 10:02:02): This is not a new submission but a resubmission. It was returned when the original name submission was returned in Kingdom. (We are using the same forms and so they were still marked new submission.)
