Adopting a name isn't always the same as a given name at birth?

Yes, that is correct. Adopting a new name is not the same as being given a name.

Right - especially in closed adoptions. My parents had no idea what my original name was.

Well, if you adopt a name, then it wouldn't be your given name. If it is your given name, there'd be no adopting of the name as it is already your name.
