The first name of the day: Igor

Etymology of firstname Igor
The first name Igor comes from Germanic and means "protection". This first name is carried by about 3,000 people in France and remains little attributed today. We honor the Igor on June 5th.

Igor is the Slavic form of first name Germanic Ingvar (the warrior god Ing). Indeed in northern mythology Ing was the God of peace, prosperity and fertility. In history, we find Saint Igor, a young prince of Muscovy who ascended the throne in 1146, but was chased by his opponents six weeks later. He took refuge in a convent and was overtaken by his enemies and murdered. Subsequently, the first name Igor became a first name very popular in Russia and was illustrated by some musicians like Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971), Igor Markevich (1912-1983) and Igor Oistrakh (1931-). In France, Igor began to spread shyly in France in the twentieth century.

Igor is a reliable and friendly young man. In his professional life, he has a sense of duty and a very good team spirit because he works methodically. In his personal life, Igor is reassuring to his family and loved ones and still holds his commitments
