Ines is a girl’s name of Spanish origin. Related to the Greek name Agnes, Ines is often given to baby girls in Spanish-, Italian-, and Portuguese-speaking cultures. It has biblical connections that often leave it defined as “pure,” “holy,” and “chaste.” Which recalls its most famous namesake, the virtuous Saint Ines, a Christian martyr in early Rome. However, it is more accurately defined by "the highest sacrifice" or the biblical "lamb," thanks to its Greek Agnes derivation. Ines is a great name for baby if you are raising her in faith and want to instill values of honor and spirituality. It has remained popular through history, as has its alternative spelling, Inez.
