Elvish[edit]

inga is an Elvish word meaning "first", said to be (or perhaps derive from) an element in "Elfin and especially Sindarin names". The word appears without any specific designated language.[1]

Helge Fauskanger has suggested that the word (and its meaning) could be valid Neo-Quenya.[2]

Etymology[edit]

Compounds[edit]

Quenya[edit]

inga is a Quenya word meaning "top", which was "only applied to shapes pointing upwards" and referred "primarily to position and could be used of tops relatively broad".[3]
