I hate this name. I know hate is a really strong word, but it has been destroyed for me after meeting an Inger who was - seriously, I'm not kidding you - a psychopath.

Inger Stevens was a Scandinavian movie starlet in the late sixties and seventies, perhaps best remembered for wearing a scandalously short white minidress to the Academy Awards in 1968.

Also very common in Norway, not just in Sweden. It was on the top 10 list of most popular names for girls in Norway from 1920 to 1964. [noted -ed]

I feel quite sorry for the above person who's impression of this name is changed forever due to one bearer they didn't care for. Though, I do understand why that's so. I personally think Inger is delightful. Uncommon in the U.S. At least, I think it would be very original (and a gentle nod to my Scandinavian culture) if I were to name a daughter this. It would make a pretty middle name as well.
