The Rhineland, in Germany, is the ancient home of the Inngleheim family. Traditionally, the German people only used one name, but as the population increased they were forced to adopt hereditary surnames. The most common type of name in Germany was derived from the name of a parent of the bearer. To this class belong patronymic names, derived from the father, and metronymic names, derived from the mother. Inngleheim comes from the baptismal name Ingel or Engel, which means Ingel. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are very few Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.

Inngleheim Early Origins



The surname Inngleheim was first found in the Rhineland, where the name Ingelheim was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.

Inngleheim Spelling Variations



Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound. The recorded spelling variations of Inngleheim include Ingelheim, Inngelheim, Inggelheim, Ingellheim, Ingleheim, Inngleheim and many more.

The Great Migration



Between the 17th and 20th centuries, hundreds of thousands of Europeans came to North America, and many Rhinelanders were among them. They had many various reasons for making the choice: to escape poverty and persecution, for adventure, and for the opportunity to own their own land. Ellis Island, one of the main American immigration centers, saw many settlers as they moved on to the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, and New York. In Canada, they found homes in Ontario, and on the great plains of the Midwestern provinces. The Inngleheim were among of the early German families that came to North America: settlers who for a variety of reasons, relocated to the New World and settled along the eastern seaboard of the United States and in Canada during the 18th and 19th centuries..
