The earliest examples of Glenys were in the 1841 England Census and 1891 & 1911 Wales Censuses.

From the Wales censuses:
One example was a 'Glenys M Evans' who was born in about 1881 in Flint.
Another was a 'Glenys Gwendoline Tucker' who was born in about 1886 in Cardiff.

From the England census:
There was a 'Glenys Thomas' who was born in about 1811 in Arlsey in Bedfordshire. However, that Glenys was a male.

So in that sense, the name would have been created in the late 19th century, as a feminine Welsh name. [noted -ed]

I am a Glenys named after a complete stranger whom my parents thought was beautiful, working in the same manufacturing plant.
Reading in various name books I was lead to believe it meant of 'the glen'.
The other book said 'good and pure'. I guess it can not be translated into many languages very easily so therefore the name has died out in popularity
Personally, I have grown to love the name there are a few Glenys', the other popular way to spell it is Glennis.
