Ingomar is an unincorporated community in Merced County, California.[1] It is located on the Southern Pacific Railroad 10.5 miles (17 km) northwest of Los Banos,[2] at an elevation of 92 feet (28 m).[1]

A post office operated at Ingomar from 1890 to 1921.[2] The name was probably from the 1842 German play Ingomar, the Barbarian by Baron Eligius Franz Joseph von Münch-Bellinghausen, a popular work in the dramatic canon in the late 19th century.[2]
