īgņa m, f (4th declension, irregular gender, dative singular)
- person who is generally sullen, surly, angry

The term īgņa is ambigenous. It is masculine when it refers to males and feminine when it refers to females. It is, however, always declined as a feminine noun, with the exception of its dative singular form, which is īgņam when it refers to a male and īgņai when it refers to a female.
