Name Sighting – Yngve / Yngwie

I was browsing through this list of ballads last night, trying to find a song for the first dance at my wedding (which is a few weeks away).

I didn’t find a song, but I did find a name: Yngwie — “ING-vay” — which belongs to Swedish musician Yngwie Malmsteen. (His real name is Lars Johan Yngve Lannerbäck, but he uses the Anglicized version of his middle name, Yngve, as a stage name.)

Yngve is a Scandinavian name based on the name of the Norse god Yngvi.
