If baby has an epic battlecry, they'll feel right at home with the masculine name Ingvar. This Scandinavian moniker derives from Old Norse and means "protected by Yngvi." The god Yngvi, also called Ing and Freyr, symbolizes virility, prosperity, and sunshine. The name's second element, Var, may come from harjaz or warjaz, meaning "defender." So, your sweet but spicy Ingvar will watch over their family with fierce determination!
