Bharat is called since time immemorial; it is Britons who have given it the name India.

Bharat was a algendary monarch and sage, the son of Dushyanta and Shakuntala (characters in the epic verse 'Abhigyan Shakuntlam' written by Kalidas).

Another interpretation is that 'Bharat' came from Bhaarati (Saraswati, the goddess of learning and knowledge).
