Origin of the name INGEBJORG.
Etymology of the name INGEBJORG.
Meaning of the baby name INGEBJORG.

  

INGEBJØRG.  Danish and Norwegian.  A variant of Old Norse Ingibjörg (q.v.), meaning "Ing's protection," from Icelandic Ing, the name of an ancient Norse god, and bjorg "protection."

... Ingebjorg found her way into an old Saga as a demi-goddess directing wind and rain; but her historical interest is connected with the unfortunate Danish princess, whom Philippe Auguste married only to repudiate, and whom French historians translate into Ingeberge, English ones into Ingoberga.  Hers is the most common female name in Norway. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
