The Indian ocean is named after India because:
  • India holds a central location which is at the head of the Indian Ocean.
  • India in ancient times was an important location in the Indian Ocean which connected Europe with countries of Southeast Asia.
  • India also has the longest coastline in the region which no other country has in the Indian ocean
