As a Jew I'm not appalled by the comparison. I don't think it's 1:1 accurate as a comparison since Britain was, to my best knowledge, being more an incidentally murderous occupying Empire than an intentionally "kill them to the last man/woman/child" campaign but to say it was a genocidal effect and that naming your white kid India isn't much more tasteful than naming them Reich is hard-hitting and a bit of a shock for many, but I'm not sure its unfair.

While I wouldn't liken the comparison to the Holocaust, it can't be denied that Britain invaded almost every country in the world, murdering millions of citizens on their way in their quest for power and domination. India is one example, Ireland comes to mind, too.
Back on topic - I'm not a fan of names from other cultures being used unless the family have a direct link to that culture.]

Don't compare these things.
And I know I'm going to take heat and hate for this, but in England there are no issues with little India's. India and Britain has a great relationship, and unless you live here and know how our countries are together, please don't pretend to know. I have many British friends with ties to India, I have many British-Indian friends and "real" Indian family members, no one has an issue with this.
