Imogen name meaning

The origin story of the name Imogen is not exactly known. The name is thought to have possibly been popularized because of a misspelling of the Celtic name Innogen in the printing of Shakespeare’s Cymbeline (source). Both Innogen and Imogen mean “maiden.”

There are also known uses of Imogen prior to Shakespeare, such as the sister of an ally of William the Conquer.

The alternative spelling to Imogen, Imogene, took hold in the U.S. a century ago. Internationally, the name is most commonly spelled Imogen and pronounced im-o-jin. Spelled as Imogene, it is pronounced im-o-jean.

The Imogene spelling was the more popular spelling in the U.S. around the name’s peak popularity in the 1920’s. However, as the name creeps back into fashion, Imogen has become the favored version for fashionable parents.
