  • "I also don't like the nickname Ingy I too have been called it, it makes me feel extremely agitated." Sep. 8, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "My girlfriend is of Swedish ancestry and named Ingrid. She's a tall, attractive redhead which is bit unique in itself so add in an unusual name and I think it's a wonderful combination! The name Ingrid and variations are common in her direct family line. I'm somewhat lukewarm about the familiar nickname of Ingy and use the full form of her name when speaking with her." Feb. 1, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am an "Ingrid" and I love my name! Honestly I did hate it for the first 15 years - I desperately wanted to be Donna or Susan or something equally normal in the US (1950/60's) but after that I loved it! I adore having a unique, uncommon (in this country) name. I would never change it! And, in response to the other writer - common??? hardly :) I have only ever met two other Ingrids my entire life. People think its a great name." Oct. 1, 2009: Report as inappropriate

One of my friends was from england they fell in love with this name so much he named his future daughter Ingrid. One of the pet peeves of having this name is that people constantly mispell the name. They either spell it like:engrid or ingred. but overall its a wonderful name." Mar. 24, 2006: Report as inappropriate
