Ygritte: baby girl name meaning and popularity

Ygritte

Ygritte is a literary name, based on the ass-kicking, strong-willed redhead of Game of Thrones fame. It's pronounced "EE-gret," like the egret bird, so if you like the name but don't want to saddle your poor daughter with people chronically mispronouncing her name, you may actually wanna choose Egret instead. Just saying.

Nicknames:

Uh ... Grit? Sounds a little rough around the edges.

Famous people named Ygritte:

Only the fictional Ygritte ... at this point anyway.

Fun fact:

In the HBO series Game of Thrones, Ygritte is a lover of Jon Snow. In a case of life imitating art, the actress who plays Ygritte (Rose Leslie) recently married Kit Harington, the actor who plays Jon Snow.
