A small list of names of nations assigned to them by the "Foreign Powers"

The first Explorerer have assigned their own names to almost all the nations 

India 
Japan (Nippon in local language)
China ( Zhongguo in local language )

West Indies (from India)
America (named after a Spaniard)

Burma , now Myanmar 
Ceylon , now Srilanka 

Singapore, indian origin name 

There is a comprehensive list 

Now Think ,who all have chosen to remove the assigned name and adopt only the local language name 

And then think of what is the motivation?

Now decide , which action  is genuinely "Political Motivation" and which is not?
