Theme rejected as probable duplicate


Today, I submitted a new theme and got the following email:

"Thanks for submitting your Theme, Bright Ice Blue.

I understand why it might seem like my theme is probably a duplicate since it’s a simple solid color, but I searched the Add-ons site with the terms “bright blue”, “solid blue”, “light blue”, “ice blue”, “solid cyan”, and “cyan”, and went up to page 8 or page 9 with each query, and didn’t find anything substantially similar to the theme I submitted. Either it was a visibly different shade, visibly different color (i.e. more or less biased towards cyan), or not solid. The closest I found is, which is still a different color (more cyan than mine), visibly more saturated/less light, and a gradient. If there is a theme out there that’s just like mine, I would like to know what it is and how I can find it, because I haven’t found it yet. Otherwise, is it possible for my theme to be reviewed again?

If my theme is considered too similar to an existing one, of course I am willing to modify it and give another try. But, I guess I feel like I should ask for another review because in the past, when I submitted a solid color theme and was rejected, I was given a specific theme my theme was considered too close to, but this time I wasn’t.
