Name Meaning

English: from the Middle English personal name Ingel, Ingald, Ingold (Old Norse Ingialdr, Ingœld, itself apparently borrowed from the Old English Ingeld, a name of ancient Germanic origin consisting of an intensive prefix in- + geld- ‘reward, forfeit’).

English: from the Middle English personal name Ingulf, representing either Old Norse Ingólfr, Ingulf or its ancient Germanic cognate, Ingenwulf, introduced to England by the Normans; the first element is derived from an ancient Germanic heroic name, and the second is ‘wolf’. As a surname it either died out or was absorbed by Ingle and its variants.

Americanized form of German Ingel: from a short form of any of several ancient Germanic personal names formed with Ing- (see 1 above). The surname Ingel is very rare in Germany.
