Ingram Surname Origins

I've done several searches for the origins of the Ingram surname... it has always come down to English or German. My grandfather was quite proud of his Irish heritage, so this was a real mystery for me. When my DH was leafing through some of his family genealogy pages the other day, he came across one that he printed off a couple of years ago on the Ingram name. According to this post on the Ingram Genforum site, it seems that it derives from the Norse who lived in Britain. And it means "Ing's raven"... Who would have thought!
