I think this is a truly beautiful name. I think Nameberry has it wrong. Then again, I’m glad it’s not drawing too much attention- it’s better that it remains a rare and unique choice!

Nameberry, you always encourage parents to choose whatever name feels right, not what other people prefer. So why turn around and try to discourage others from choosing a name that might very well be perfect for their little boy or girl? I've seen countless snarky comments or bad jokes in the name info boxes. Helloooo? It's for information about the name, not information about your opinion.

It's just not for me. I like Ingrid, though!

I agree. Basically every name is forever from its country of origin, so what does that even mean? I don't see them saying a name like Malcolm is forever Celtic. It's a name, that's all it is.

It is indeed a nice name. I have a family member with it and she wears it well. She was named after her great grandmother, Signe (it was her aunt's middle name, but her aunt doesn't like it so they named her Sigrid).

Okay, Nameberry, you don't have to be so harsh. I think this is a nice name. I'd never use it, but the people I know with this name pull it off well. Who cares if it's "forever Scandinavian"? What does that even mean?
