There's a super deep meaning behind it but I don't think you guys are really interested in that :P

but I believe in a way our nicknames say more about us than our given names. While I can still identify as (insert my government name here), I feel that in a lot of ways, I AM Raze. When I talk about myself in third person (which I may or may not do more than would be considerred (normal) lol) I often call myself Raze, simply because that's who I ACTUALLY am. (insert my government name here) just happens to be the name I'm legally identified as. But Raze is who I identify myself as... and I think that means so much more
Agreed. I feel the name Karma is something that was given to me by the people who really matter, something I earned by being me, and them loving me for what I am. I respond to being called Karma more readily than I do my given name.
