Meaning:Mother of King Arthur
Ygerna is a feminine name that’s likely a version of the Latin Igerna or Middle English Igraine. It doesn’t seem to have any other meaning aside from being cast as King Arthur’s mother in folklore. Even so, after Arthur’s birth, he was taken away to be raised by Merlin and legend has it that she never saw him again. If you want your little one to know and feel just how much you love them, even in absence, Ygerna tugs at the heartstrings like no other.
