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.
