Glen is an honor name I may considering using some day. It is very special to me and while I think it's a nice sturdy name, I would only use it as a middle name because it's not exactly my style
what are your opinions on Glen as a middle name?
What first names do you like with it? I feel it doesn't fit a lot of names on my list since my top 3 are very G heavy (Morgan, Grady, Grant)
Is there another way to honor this name without actually using the it? such as a variation or similar name?

I love Glen as a middle name. I also like it as a first name. It's on my list too because it honors my grandfather.
Variations (some may be a stretch but they work for me, especially if it's just a middle name):
My list of Honor Names & Favorites:
GIRLS: Alda, Aldina, Bernice, Carolina, Elaine, Esmeralda, Glenna, Glennora, Lillian, Rosemarie
EITHER: Harley, Harlen
BOYS: Alden, Euan, Glenwell, Isaac, Oliver, Oswald, Wells

Yes to Glen! I adore it as a middle name. As proof, my son oldest son is Daniel Glen. Granted, it's my father-in-law's middle name, and my husband asked if we could use it. I would have objected if I didn't love it. Instead, I immediately agreed. Glen is crisp, smooth, and yet strong. The hard G is manly to my ears. Even though it is just four letters, three of the letters are consonants, making it rich and substantial.
I think that Glen goes well with most first names, except: (1) Those with the hard G sound (2) One-syllable first names, or (3) Names that are rhymey or have the same sounds like Dennis, Benjamin, and Evan.
The middle name of Glen for my son has been a delight for me. So much so, that about 80% of the time, I call him "Daniel Glen." I also adore these combo ideas:
Daniel Glen (can't resist including it)
