Origin of the name IMOGEN.
Etymology of the name IMOGEN.
Meaning of the baby name IMOGEN.

  

IMOGEN.  Long renders this name "last born." (Personal and Family Names, Long, 1883).  Apparently from omega, the "last" letter of the Greek alphabet, and genes "born."  There are many variant spellings, including Imagina, Imogene, Imogine, Innogen, Inogene, and Omogene.  Usage: America, England, Italy.

    Imogen is presumably an old English name, but the only authority who attempts to give it a meaning is Mr. H. A. Long and he believes it to signify "last born."

                                           I'll disrobe me
Of these Italian weeds and suit myself
As does a Briton peasant: so I'll fight
Against the past I come with; so I'll die
For thee, O Imogen, even for whom my life
Is every breath a death; and thus, unknown,
Pitied nor hated, to the face of peril
Myself I'll dedicate.
                            Cymbeline (Shakespeare)
