Hi Sherab -- I was once in a "consciousness raising group" in the '70's on
the fast-track to being a "trainer". One of the ways in which our
"trainers" broke us down was to question our identities. One very
beautiful soul used the name "Given". Because of the love in his heart,
they were unable to "erase" his name. They finally surrendered to
realizing he was a very pure soul who was "given" the name "Given" because
it fit. Much love, Kat in Italy

Keep using your name Sherab and don't ask for anyone's 
approval or blessing, just use it, that's my vote. I think it's cool it's 
a kind of mantra.
