Gloriana Origin and Meaning

The name Gloriana is a girl's name meaning "glory".

Originally the name of the titular faerie queene of Spenser's epic poem "The Faerie Queene," published in 1590. Gloriana was, along with Belphoebe, an allegory for Queen Elizabeth.

In the 400-odd years since then, Gloriana has been used as a title several times, and as the name of at least one band -- but rarely as a girls' name. If you can get past its starched formality, it could be a fresh-sounding way to honor a grandma Gloria.
