Quoting from the proposal,

“A further, shorter, alternative would be LATIN CAPITAL/SMALL LETTER 
HORNED O, referring to the letter’s name /o rogate/ ‘horned o’ in 
colloquial use among Polish specialists (e. g. Bień 2020:2).”

That might be workable unless it is felt that there may be confusion 
between the proposed character pair and LATIN CAPITAL/SMALL LETTER O
