Glenn (name)

Glenn is a surname derived from the Irish/Scottish Gaelic word gleann. In the 19th century, Glenn also became common as a given name in English speaking cultures.

In Sweden, Glenn is relatively common first name in the western parts of the country but especially Gothenburg, originally due to a large and influential population of emigrated Scotsmen, especially in the city's early centuries. The name was very prevalent in the local football team IFK Göteborg which in the early 1980s had no fewer than four players named Glenn, including Glenn Hysén and Glenn Strömberg. The Swedish name is not Gaelic in origin, but rather derived from the Norse God Glenr, being part of the Viking revival.
