INGLE Family History
Recorded as Englis, Ingle, Inglis, Inkle, Ingold, Ingoll, Ingall, Ingalls, Hingle and the patronymics Ingelson and Ingilson, this is an English medieval surname. It originates from the pre 7th century Old Norse-Viking personal name Inqialdr. This was composed of the elements "ing" meaning a swelling and the name of a minor Norse god associated with fertility (!), plus the word "gialdr", meaning a tribute; hence, "Ing's tribute". The Anglo-Scandinavian forms of the name were Ingald and Ingold, the latter appearing in the Domesday Book of 1086 for the county of Yorkshire.
