Not as such, no. You need to submit a name before (or at the same
time that) you submit a coat of arms or badge. If you ask that a
holding name be formed for you from the documentable elements of
the name, if it doesn't pass in it's entirety, then one will be
formed for you, and the armory held for you under that name.
Otherwise, Laurel will dump both name and arms into the circular

You've conflated the "mundane name allowance" and the concept of
a holding name. The MNA says that you can try to register a name
that includes elements of your mundane name-Laurel _has_ rejected
stuff using a person's mundane name before-"Legend of Hunter's
Rest" is the example in Jaelle's tenure of service.
