Posh. A bit overdone. Nice though.

Only if you have connections with the country.

India Knight puts me off.

No one from India actually names their kids that though fwiw.

CityDweller Sun 30-Sep-12 16:59:34

Love it.

justhayley Sun 30-Sep-12 17:15:45

I thinks it's lovely

DawnOfTheDee Sun 30-Sep-12 17:17:02

It's ok but to me it really dates to being born in the 90's.

NellyJob Sun 30-Sep-12 17:17:07

what about 'Pakistan'?

Frontpaw Sun 30-Sep-12 17:21:37

My Indian friend was staring at a shop called India Rose and eventually said 'what the hell is that?' When I told her that India is sometimes used as a girls name she almost peed herself laughing.

I'm not sure about it myself.

effingwotsits Sun 30-Sep-12 17:22:31

I really like it. I like indie too.

EdMcDunnough Sun 30-Sep-12 17:23:58

It's a very pretty name in its own right but I'm not sure about its provenance...it seemed to come out of nowhere as a 'cool' name because people had once visited the country or something. Or liked to pretend they had. So I used to think it was a bit pretentious.

But I think it's a nice name if you aren't trying to be cool.

zombies I know an Indian couple who's dd2 is called India!

thefirstmrsrochester Sun 30-Sep-12 17:30:58

Love it ......my dd is called India.

evocative of quinoa munching mc parents
is really cliched usually said in an affected en-dee-aahhh way
seeing we are doing place names...cambuslang,armadale,lesmahagow,drymen?

The same people cooing over how nice a name 'India' is are probably the same kind of people who'd sneer at 'Chardonnay' or 'Mercedes'.

The irony is that one (middle) class of tacky is no better than another.

TidyGOLDDancer Sun 30-Sep-12 17:57:01

I do quite like it, but it's become sort of adopted into the trendy catagory now which puts me off.

Kelerina Sun 30-Sep-12 18:54:55

It's funny, people seem to think of it as a posh name but to my ear it's really chavvy!!! No idea why though

PandaWatch Sun 30-Sep-12 18:59:12

India is hardly a new name! There's an India in Gone With The Wind. It's lovely OP.

PandaWatch Sun 30-Sep-12 19:02:56

Oh and comparing Mercedes (remember it was a girl's name waaaaay before the car...) to chardonnay is just silly imo.

herhonesty Sun 30-Sep-12 19:10:42

Well I am quite partial to quinoa. Prefer couscous though.
