Name Meaning

1 English: from either of two Old Norse personal names: Ingjaldr, in which the prefix in- probably reinforces the element -gjaldr, related to Old Norse gjalda ‘to pay or recompense’, or Ingólfr ‘Ing's wolf’ (Ing was an ancient Germanic fertility god).2 English: habitational name from Ingol in Lancashire, which is named from the Old English personal name Inga + holh ‘hollow’, ‘depression’.3 Probably a variant of German Ingel, from a short form of any of several Germanic personal names formed with Ing- (see 1 above).
