You're not *entitled* to it. The Rules for Submission currently allow you
to register such a name without needing to document the parts, but if the
specific combination poses another problem, it'll get returned. Consider,
for example, someone mundanely named John living in the Atlantian group
named Hawkwood; "John of Hawkwood" conflicts with a rather famous period
military leader, and the name would be returned on that basis. (This is in
fact a true story, somewhat simplified for brevity.)

Hey, my (mundane) parents live there... as did I for a time.

at all far-fetched...)
