Inga is not that common in Sweden. Why, why, why is it always "Inga from Sweden" in films?

In Sweden it is often seen in hyphenated names like Inga-Britt, Inga-Lill (Ingalill), also in Ing-versions like Ing-Marie.

This is my daughter's first name. She is part Swedish and part Dutch and Frisian (and some other things), hence the two languages. I think her name suits her perfectly because it is beautiful, unusual, and traditional.

It bugs me that in all the American movies "the Swedes" pronounce the name Ing-ga when real Swedish people say Ing-a.

Pronounced ING-ah in Swedish.

It's very, very dated and ugly.

Inga is a common name in the northern Scottish isles of Orkney and Shetland. Probably because of the islands' strong links to Scandinavia throughout history.

My name is Inga and I am from California (USA). People always ask if I am from Sweden. I may be blond and have hazel eyes but I am not Swedish. I was not a fan of my name as a child but I have grown to love it.
