Ing Family HistoryThis unusual suname is medieval English, but of Norse-Viking pre 7th century origins. It has two possible origins. The first is from the personal name Ing or Inga, itself often an element in both compound names such as Ingall, Ingle, Ingold and in the place names of Ingleby, Ingoldsby and over fifty others. Ing was originally the name of a Norse god associated with fertility, athough the word is believed to be Germanic, and to have the possible meaning of "swelling". It was probably introduced into the British Isles in the 7th century although the first known recording in England is in the famous Domesday Book for the county of Essex in 1066 - 1086.
