    No, it makes sense as India is at least attached to it....putting "American" into the name at all has no relation to its geographic location. I can't say I know why they chose to name it the Indian Ocean, but it has been called that for a long time and changing it to "Native American Ocean" has no logical sense to it at all. If you are offended by its name call it something else, but your suggestion is just stupid.

          Depends on your point of view. If you wish to amuse others, you may be right, if you wish to amuse yourself, you may be very wrong.

            By that logic it should be the Tasmanian Ocean or Somlian Ocean or even the China Ocean. But that logic is not only facile, it's not even slightly amusing, so....PASS.

                What?....You are suggesting renaming it...fine, rename it I don't care, but if you are going to do that don't name it related to something on the other side of the planet. Call it any one of those if you wish, but I don't see how that would be any better than just keeping the name the same.
