Inigo, almost unknown in the U.S., is an intriguing choice, with its strong beat, creative and evocative sound, and associations with the great early British architect and stage designer Inigo Jones. The sixteenth-seventeenth century Jones shared his name with his father, a London clockmaker, who received it when Spanish names were fashionable in England, especially among devout Roman Catholics.

Inigo Montoya is a character in The Princess Bride, played by Mandy Patinkin.
