Recently read some quite amazing things about Lopon Tsechu Rinpoche. You're quite fortunate to have connection to such a mahasiddha! A pleasure to meet you as well, kind sir.
This name was bestowed by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche not long ago at a very special time in my life. My fiancee (now ex) took refuge as well, and we later found out she was pregnant with our daughter. KKR gave us three part names, and obviously the "Karma" portion is quite common in Kamtsang to denote refuge taken with a teacher in Karmapa's lineage. The same is true in the Drikung lineage, where most names begin with "Konchog," denoting refuge taken with a teacher in Lord Jigten Sumgön's tradition.
I often wonder if European-derived names would be seen quite differently if, like in Tibetan, we used common words rather than ones whose meanings are shrouded in the mists of time and need etymology to decode. Obviously for Westerners there is a possible element of exoticism and romantic orientialism, with one thinking it cool to have a Tibetan name kind of like belonging to a secret club. Personally, I've been interested in foreign languages since I can remember, so it's nothing new as far as that goes. Honestly, i tend to think that my teachers have given me names truer to my being than my legal name, or at least names which show me which qualities I should aspire to cultivate.
May all beings be long-lived, generous, wise, realize their indestructible Buddha-nature, and value like precious jewels all fellow beings they meet along the path!
"The Sutras, Tantras, and Philosophical Scriptures are great in number. However life is short, and intelligence is limited, so it's hard to cover them completely. You may know a lot, but if you don't put it into practice, it's like dying of thirst on the shore of a great lake. Likewise, it happens that a common corpse is found in the bed of a great scholar." ~ Karma Chagme དྲིན་ཆེན་རྗེ་བཙུན་བླ་མ་རཱ་ག་ཨ་སྱ་མཁྱེན་ནོ།
