Ines is the romance languages’ answer to the harsh Agnes. This name became popular in large part to the prominence of Saint Agnes (Ines for Spanish, French and Portuguese speaking countries) during the Middle Ages. She was such a beloved martyr that a cult sprung up around her, and thus spread the name throughout Christian Europe, including into the Portuguese royal family. Lovely sounding name with a long history (but maybe leave the cult part out!).
