So I've always loved the name India, but my inlaws, who, to say the least, are not cultured and very close-minded. I was talking about my love for the name India and my mother-in-law says, "Well we're white, you're white. Why would you name her India?" UGH. Do you see what I have to put up with?! Anyways, both me and DH like it but the in-laws don't. Our other name is Margaret nn Maggie but we've been getting comments that its a bit boring. We also like Catherine but don't want a Will and Kate (our sons name is Will). Middle name would be Corinne after my mom, unless I can get talked into using it as a first. Other idea was Cora after my mom. What do you berries think? India Corinne, Margaret Corinne, Corrine, or Cora?
Thanks berries!Mother to William Joseph with baby Iris Corinne due at the end of March

Well, your in-laws are kind of right. There's a lot of controversy surrounding the name India being used by a caucasian person. Maybe you should research it. I'm sure there are other threads dedicated to this on here. I found this one India - Should it be used? and this one maybe, Words you like but are inappropriate for names? For ex: Malaria

India isn't my cup of tea. It is a tad controversial imo, and there are some aspects and some negative associations I don't like about the country. It seems to leave me with a bad impression of the name in general.
I do think Margaret and Corinne are lovely, and I love Cora as a nn for Corinne. I don't think I could chose between those two.
I think I would do Corinne Margaret, nn Cora.
