Imogen is a female given name, probably created by William Shakespeare for a character in his play "Cymbeline". Shakespeare likely meant to use the name of Innogen, a legendary figure whose name was derived from a Celtic word "inghean" meaning "maiden", but a misprinting that was never corrected resulted in the name of the character being printed instead as Imogen. The name is currently rising in popularity in England and Wales, where it was the 34th most popular name for baby girls in 2007, and in New South Wales, Australia, where the name was the 35th most popular name for baby girls in 2007. It was ranked 86th in popularity for baby girls in Scotland in 2007. [ [http://www.behindthename.com/top/search.php?terms=imogen Behind the Name] ]
