Ingle Family History
Ingle Name Meaning
English: from the Middle English personal name Ingel Ingald Ingold (Old Norse Ingialdr Ingœld itself apparently borrowed from the Old English Ingeld a name of ancient Germanic origin consisting of an intensive prefix in- + geld- ‘reward forfeit’). English: from the Middle English personal name Ingulf representing either Old Norse Ingólfr Ingulf or its ancient Germanic cognate Ingenwulf introduced to England by the Normans; the first element is derived from an ancient Germanic heroic name and the second is ‘wolf’. As a surname it either died out or was absorbed by Ingle and its variants. Americanized form of German Ingel: from a short form of any of several ancient Germanic personal names formed with Ing- (see 1 above). The surname Ingel is very rare in Germany.
