Reply to: What is the meaning of the name Inka? by Inka
I knew a twin with one of them named Inka.

It's a girl's name and a short form of Inkeri.
Inkeri: Teutonic, meaning 'hero's daughter'.

INGE m,f German, Scandinavian
Short form of German and Scandinavian names beginning with the element ing, which refers to the Norse god ING.

ING m Germanic Mythology, Norse Mythology
From old Germanic Ingwaz, which possibly means "he who is foremost". Ing was the name of a Norse and Germanic fertility god, known in Scandinavia as Yngvi Freyr (see FREYR).

FREYR m Norse Mythology
Pronounced: FRAYR
Means "lord" from Old Norse. This was another name of the Norse god Ing. Freyr was actually derived from a title of Ing, Yngvi Freyr, meaning "lord Ing". Freyr (or Ing) presided over fertility, sunlight and rain, and was the husband of the frost giantess Gerd.
