I wouldn't rush to do this proactively, if you're asking me. The name has been Oriya in English for 200 years. The usual scientific transliteration is oṛiā anyway, and "Odia" will never get the right pronunciation from English speakers. The letter in question is ଡ is [ɽ], which is defintely not a [d].
