I decided my Dharma name. It is Pema Sangye. Pronouced pay-ma san-jay.

Which means Lotus Buddha.

What are they good for? Affirmation of the path?

Yes affirmation of the path. Because I am the first incarnate of the Lotus Buddha.

Typically they are given by Dharma masters to students, not just chosen for oneself. But if you feel the connection then maybe it's a good thing.

When I took Buddhist refuge I was given the name Konchog Tsultrim which means, "Jewel of Discipline." I always thought that was very ironic because discipline is anything but descriptive of me.

I recall the expression "You are your best teacher", so I guess you can be your own student aswell? :smile:
