    Definitely - one of the main reasons I prefer India to Isla is the diminutive.

    Based on the comments I will definitely ask my Indian friends if they find the name offensive before Deciding. I expect they won't but I could be wrong.

    The origin of the name of the country is different from its use as a given name. The name "India" is fine for the country, it's the use on people that's the problem.

    Yep.

    Also, it's not that India was a "translation of the name". It's the reasons daisy451 listed.
