  • "I love the name India. We've called our baby India Mai (born in May). The word actually means river. It's also shortened to Indi but I prefer India so i'm going to try really hard not to shorten it. Children always end up with so many nicknames. It's a shame when they have beautiful names. Everyone I know says her name is beautiful - including older people. Perhaps as my older daughter is called Chilali Star - anything seems normal compared to that..."
