I have no problem in calling the names of Bombay, Calcutta, Madras or Baroda. In fact, those names are still used by many in India. Moreover, I think even changing names of other cities was a wastage because it didn't solve any problems of these cities. BTW Chennai was established by British.Moreover, there are many things in India that are contributions from british like railways, Parliament house and Rahstrapati bhawan to name a few. Why don't we finish these of too and go back to pre-british era as well? By doing this aren't we becoming taliban ourselves?
