British Baby Names Okay, I know I said I was avoiding speculating on the upcoming Royal baby name, but, when Linda asked me to write a guest post over at Nameberry, I couldn resist.
The two posts I have written look at the top 11 most likely choices (for a name, at least) for both boys and girls, with a bit of background history about the use of nicknames, and the greater leeway with middle names. (Diana, Michael, Carol and Frances are just as likely to be used as a middle name as any royal name, for example). My aim was to produce something a little more detailed than most of the speculative post; hopefully some people will find it interesting(!)Ingram derives from the old Germanic name Ingelram/Engelram, which is of uncertain meaning. The second element is most certainly the Germanic meaning "raven" oakley camo sunglasses in the names Bertram, Wolfram, Guntram and Rambert. Some propose it comes from the Old Germanic word angul, engil can refer either to "a hook "an angel" (a borrowing from the Latin angelus), or "Angle" from the Germanic tribe that later became the Anglo Saxons, and the route of the name England. The Angles came from Angeln in northern Germany; so named, it is thought, because the area was shaped like a hook. Ing was the name of an ancient fertility God who featured in both Norse and Germanic theology and was the legendary ancester of the oakley brand Germanic Ingvaeones tribe. is generally thought that Ing was the older name for the Norse god Freyr, which itself is simply a title meaning "lord". This name element is found in many many Norse and Germanic names, such as Ingeborg, Ingemar, Ingrid, Ingvar, Ingwald, Ingenulf/Engenulf, Ingemund and Ingebiorn, though whether it is a direct connection to the god name or referring to the uncertain. The interpretation has existed for centuries, though it is likely to be an attempt to assimilate an old Pagan name with Christian ideals after the time when Northern Europe was Christianised. It is further possible that both "Ingil hraban" and "Angil hraban" were in use as separate names, oakley asian fit and eventually became merged together. Ingelram and Engelram are found in early medieval records across Northern Europe. One of the earliest examples is Ingilram, bishop of Metz in 768 791. Although the name was established more widely in Britain by the arrival of Normans, there is no reason to suppose that price oakley sunglasses a cognate form of the name was not used previously by the Anglo Saxons in England (who shared many related names with their continental brethren). There is a tantalising mention in a charter from 963 AD seven hides in Vange, Essex being granted by King Edgar to faithful minister Ingeram; though other examples are hard to find. Engelram became Enguerrand or Engerran in Old French and can be found used widely among French aristocracy, most notably the counts of Ponthieu and the Lords of Coucy. The Norman nobles reforced the name when they brought it with them to Britain, and quickly it established itself among the English and Scottish elite. There are several examples of the name in 1086 in the Domesday Book, showing a distinct Norman influence. From this time, produced the surnames Ingram, Ingrams, Ingrem, Ingraham and Ingry. One Ingram Baliol (d. 1234) was a staunch supporter of King Alexander II of Scotland and was made Lord of Inverkeilor. From the 18th century onwards, use of the name was bolstered by the surname Ingram, being used as a 1841 UK census lists 118 Ingrams (94% in England, 6% in Scotland) and this figure remained fairly consistent over the century: 103 in 1861, 107 in 1881, 132 in 1901 and 114 in 1911.
name saw a steep decline after the 1920s. It was registered 12 times in England and Wales throughout the 1930s, 12 times in the 1940s, 7 times in the 1950s and 1960s respectively, 6 times in the 1970s, 4 times in the 1980s, and 1990s. Since 1996, the name Ingram has not featured on the data for England and Wales because it has not been given to more than 3 babies in any given year.
