Ingerman, or Ingram was a Frank and count of Hesbaye. All that is known for certain of his origins is that he was nephew of Chrodegang, Archbishop of Metz and first abbot of the Lorsch Abbey, and hence grandson of Chrodegang's parents, Sigramus and Landrada.

Ingerman's daughter is certainly Ermengarde. She married into the Frankish royal family, the Carolingians and was the first wife of King Louis the Pious.
