jahanbismi Says:


I'm of Indian descent and although it doesn't "offend" me I would laugh if someone named their kid Indian (hehe it's such a funny name)

kitchi1 Says:


I agree, I can definitely see 'Indian' offending people.

mabespark Says:


India is beautiful - this, on the other hand, has the potential of offending people, and to me it's not at all attractive.

CocoWhite Says:


Agreed. Perhaps Indie would make a better choice.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


That's the same reason I dislike the name Roman. Why name your child after a race/culture?

ambg Says:


I think it's a bit misguided to name your child after another race or nationality because it kind of smacks of a condescending orientalism. I see too many people with names like India and China because their parents wanted something that sounded "exotic". Food for thought before you go for this if you're not actually, I guess, Indian. In which case I don't know why you'd want to name your kid this anyway.
