Since we follow the Western Orthodox way we believe Benedictines in the Orthodox Church should use “O.C.S.B.” standing for the “Orthodox Congregation of St Benedict”.  Therefore, Romualdians abbreviate our name to “Rom” together with the Benedictine designation such as: “O.C.S.B. Rom.”. Therefore the founder of the 21st c. Romualdian Fathers is known as “Father Symeon, OCSB Rom.”.

Sounds vagante and not appropriate for a monk in my ears...what do you think about it?

They're not vagante.  They're listed in the ROCOR Western Rite Directory, unless they very recently split off.

I have no opinion on what a monastic community decides to do under their superior, especially if their bishop has no problem.

This is not the far more interesting thread topic that I thought it was.


Truly a pity there are apparently not Romulan Fathers.

Reading more into it, this hermitage or monk was from a "true" Orthodox jurisdiction and was received into ROCOR.
