I'm not sure if it's relevant, but in Marion Zimmer Bradley's "Mists of Avalon" Viviane mentions that Igraine's original name is GrĂ¡inne.

This name always reminds me of the word 'migraine.' However Igraine is my favourite female character in Arthurian Legend. Just don't like her name.

The mother of Arthur's name was also spelled Ygraine.

I don't like this name, for the simple reason of Igraine+M=Migraine. Okay, it's not the right spelling, but...

Igraine Ohnefurcht (= I without fear) is the heroine of a novel by Cornelia Funke. In the audio book, the name is pronounced according to german pronunciation rules (ee-GRYE-nuh).
