Receiving a new name

I have been practicing Krishna Consciousness for nearly two years now. I follow the regulative principles, chant at least 16 rounds a day, and read from Prabhupada's books daily. Unfortunatly, I live quite far from a temple, which makes it difficult to attend. I know that when one commits to Krishna, one is given a new name. I have also been told that it is not necessary, but rather is a nice thing to do. I consider myself to be initiated by Prabhupada through his teachings, but without direct association to a temple, how can I receive a Krishna name?
