I am Inga. Originally from Russia. So, I pronounce it In-ga, not blending "Ing- a". I am a stereotypical Inga - tall, blond, green eyes. One good thing about this name - it's rare, feels like my very own:).

Very dated and unattractive. Ingrid is a thousand times better.

I like the sound of it. It isn't terribly harsh or long, and it is a decent name for someone. I don't see a racial slur, and I prefer this to Ingrid.

This is my least favorite nickname of Ingrid. It doesn’t reflect the beauty of the name Ingrid and sounds really harsh. Worst of all, it rhymes with a racial slur.

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.

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.

Pronounced ING-ah in Swedish.

It's very, very dated and ugly.

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

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.

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

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