Just read about Indian IT city number 1 Bangalore that changed name eralier this month to Bangaluru (Bangalooru), though the decision to change was taken a year ago. I searched Wikipedia for Bangaluru and found out that the name is the pronunciation in the Dravidian language Kannada. Further down in the text from Wikipedia tells:
On October 7th 2006, the Government of Karnataka accepted this resolution and decided to officially implement the name change on November 1st 2006. However, the name change still has to be approved by the central government, a process that is expected to take a few months.
Searching Ne.se – the Swedish national encyclopedia – returns no hits on Bangaluru but suggests Bangalore. The article on Bangalore says nothing about Bangaluru and Kannada spelling of Bangalore.
