Ingegerd is a popular Swiss name for girls. Derived from Old Norse, Ing refers to a god whom the earliest Norwegian kings are believed to be descended from. This nugget of information may have found its way into the Swiss Alps in the late 15th century on the heels of the Swedish and Frisian migration. Alongside _garðr_ meaning “protection,” Ingegerd stands for “Ing’s protection.” So choosing this name for your little one is a touching gesture to keep them out of harm’s way.
