The Bay of Bengal, the largest bay in the world, forms the northeastern part of the Indian Ocean. Roughly triangular in shape, it is bordered mostly by India and Sri Lanka to the west, Bangladesh to the north, and Burma (Myanmar) and the Andaman and Nicobar Islands to the east.

Do U refer to the location with reference to the adjacent state/union territory

or the geographical/atmospheric state/situation ...???

As per the 1st assumption I 'm of the view that at the entrance of Europeans in the east coastal India KOLKATA was the 1st place occupied by the British ppl ... and by the effect of the colloquial language BANGLA the BAY was named as BAY of BENGAL....bcz the BAY takes an arch shape at the region of BANGLA speaking ppl....thatz the history behind inheritance of the bay as BAY of BENGAL

2nd assumption - The Bay of Bengal is situated at such a geographical location that itz frequently experience a fatal depression during last August to mid November which often gives rise to catastrophic twisters....as like as that in cape of florida USA.....Itz due to sharp differential TROP-LINE between a region of low-depression & high-depression....which many a times triggers a fatal atmospheric difference in pressure ... when this difference cross the limit ...more

In bad state....silted up and now the den of pirates...
earlier large ships would come in through the Diamon Harbour in Kolkata...
but now even after the fruitless and money squandering de-silting process...
only the smaller ships can come in near the bay...rest is good till the next tsunami wave !

The Bay of Bengal appears as Sinus Gangeticus or Gangeticus Sinus, meaning "Gulf of the Ganges", in ancient maps.In the 10th century the explosion of Indianized kingdoms, led by the Chola Empire, resulted in the Bay of Bengal being known as the Chola Lake. It later came to be known as Bay of Bengal in after the region of Bengal.
