This is correct.

Nope.  You have to submit something as a name.  Any armory is registered or
catalogued, if you will, by the SCA name submitted.  No name, no way to
catalogue it.  (Gee, this is a keen badge.  Wonder who it belongs to?)  It
has been discussed before cataloguing people's submissions by either modern
name or social security number, but both ideas were heartily rejected.  

Also, holding names are ONLY assigned at the Laurel level.  Therefore, if
your name submission cannot get past kingdom, your armory doesn't either.
