  1. Indira Ghandi became Prime Minister of India in 1966 so I guess that explains such a rare name suddenly being used in the U.S. at that time. It's a gorgeous name with the nickname Indy/Indie, but so heavily tied to Ms. Ghandi, which is not a bad association, but still feels like a truly Indian name.

    1. That would make sense. I think it's a great name and Indy is an adorable nickname.
