    STOP. EVERYONE STOP. Pam and Linda should close this before it gets out of hand again. We've said all of this over and over and over. We don't need to do it again.

    If you want to know about the British/French/Dutch/Portuguese occupation of India then watch the episode about in 'Simon Schama's: A History of Britain' or even read this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_india.

    Your the same as me! I always get names stuck in my head!

    India is gorgeous, she sounds culturally rich and really intriguing. I love how India is obviously associated with the country thus conjuring up images of the Taj Mahal, vibrant colours and a colourful history. I've loved India ever since finding out that my old teacher's child is called India after the place she was born (she was born in Mumbai) and I also thought it was an endearing choice as her husband (the father) is Indian. I love this name, and even though people are getting up in arms about this name and the issue of colonialism of India and how this choice could be considered offensive to others I really don't think this is the case. My old teacher Mrs Sharma (whose white British) and her husband Mr Sharma (whose Indian) never faced any comments about their daughter's name expect aww that's a great choice. But hey what do I know?

    Um? The OP asked for opinions on the name, and obviously the problematic, controversial aspects attached to this specific name should thus be discussed and spelled out. Everyone is being civil.

    Is India used as a given name in the country India? If not, it shouldn't be used here (same as Italy, Ireland, Scotland, Britain, etc.).
