Origin and Meaning

Germanic name element (see also IGN)

This name element derives from the name of an ancient Germanic god. The meaning of his name is as yet unexplained (maybe related to Greek énchos = 'lance', 'staff' [1]). He is the ancestor of the coastal Germanic tribe Ingaevones, so the name element either means

'belonging/dedicated to the Germanic god'

or

'belonging to the tribe of the Ingaevones '

Ancient Germanic

*Ingwa = 'the name of a god' [2]
*Ingwaz = 'the name of a god' [3] [4] [5]
*Ingwi = 'the name of a god' [2]
*Ingu = 'the name of a god' [2]

Proto-Norse

*Ingwia- = 'the name of a god' [1]

Old Norse

Yngvi = 'the name of a god' [1]

Anglo-Saxon

Ing = 'the name of a god' [6] [1]
