Should the names of the A&N islands be changed

Should the name of A&N islands be changed? This is a question that keeps coming up again and again like a bad dream, as if there is nothing more important in or for the islands. (A BJP MP has just made a call for this: See: http://www.indiatimes.com/…/a-bjp-member-is-demanding-to-ch…) See the link below for a short article I did exactly a decade ago (in 2007) for the Times of India questioning the rationale? It appears again in the new collection of 'old' A&N writings 'Islands in flux - the Andaman story'.
