Ingrid is a Baby Girl Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Ingrid.

The name Ingrid is a girl's name of Norse origin meaning "fair, beautiful". The luminous Ingrid Bergman's appeal was strong enough to lend universal charisma to this classic Scandinavian name, which has been somewhat neglected in the US. Even today, a child named Ingrid would be assumed to be of Scandinavian ancestry, signaling the name has never been fully integrated into the English lexicon the way other European choices from the same era like Danielle or Kathleen have. Still popular in its native Scandinavia, where it is a royal name, its highest US ranking was Number 380 in 1967. Its meaning refers to Ing, the Norse god of fertility, peace, and prosperity, and he's looked upon as the ancestor of the Swedish kings. Ingrid was the name of mother figures in both Spy Kids and White Oleander. Trivia tidbit: It's Scarlett Johansson's middle name.
