Gender: M Meaning of Glenn: "valley" Origin of Glenn: Scottish

Glenn appealed to a lot of post-World War II parents for its cool, leafy image, also calling up the Big Band sounds of Glenn Miller and the calm, composed image of actor Glenn Ford, whose name at birth was the Welsh (now perhaps more appealing) Gwyllm. It could possible be in line for a comeback in the more nature-evoking spelling of Glen, as used by Glen Campbell, or possibly even the Welsh Glyn. Actress Glenn Close made it a female possibility.
