Well, that's more than subjective because the stroke is in the upper
third or even quarter in almost all common fonts. And those where it is
lower are usually completely unusable for a logo (extremely squiggly).

However, I am aware of one font, that might work... I have used it for
a caps lettering already: Chaerilidae
I have attached a lower-case variant with that font. What do you think
about it?

Other suggestions for fonts are welcome...
