And in case you haven't noticed, when someone asks a question on
heraldry and having something registered, and someone else answers,
there is always a caution that "the other herald" might be wrong!

As I suggested earlier, if you cannot find the documentation yourself on
the name Adrianna, and that is really the name you have your heart set
upon, do the paperwork, send in the name you desire, and let the
Triton's staff argue about its correctness and the result will most
likely be that the name will be registered. You can do the paperwork a
variety of ways that is convinient for you...

Good luck!
