Gender: Feminine
Origin: Swedish/Norwegian

The name is a smush of the Old Norse female name Inga and Lill which can either be in reference to the Swedish word lille meaning “little; small” or Lilly which is a Swedish form of Lily and a diminutive form of Elisabeth. The name was quite common in the 1940-50s, but is now considered rather dated in Scandinavia. The name is borne by Norwegian Politician Ingalill Olsen (b.1955) and its designated name-day in Sweden is October 25.
