In "I Know Why the Caged Bird sings" by Maya Angelou, Marguerite (Maya) works in a house with another woman named Miss Glory, formerly Miss Hallelujah.

Glory was a character on the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer; she was the "Big Bad" of the fifth season. She was one of three hellgods who ruled over a demon dimension, but was expelled and trapped inside a human body. Her mission was to obtain the Key (the character Dawn), and use it to get back to her own dimension. She was killed by the character Giles.

The name is over-the-top and pompous, to say the least. It sounds like the type of name a religious nut who also happens to be megalomaniacal and egomaniacal alike would pick for their daughter, with all sorts of larger-than-life plans for the poor girl. Tacky indeed.

Oh, and in addition to what I wrote before, this is something many people shout in a sarcastic manner, and then there are the people who do it in moments of religious euphoria and people who do it in other positive circumstances. I bet some people shout this during climax, too. It would be quite a weird name for all these reasons.

How can you say that this can be used as a religious phrase and something to shout during an orgasm all in the same breath? That might be a wee offensive to some people here, sweetie. As for the name, it's not bad. It's kinda cute. It's not tacky or made-up sounding, but I probably wouldn't use it for my kid.

Actually, I think this is a wonderful nickname for Gloria. However, with a name as pretty as Gloria, you shouldn't need a nickname. :)

Glory sounds really corny as a name and makes me think of evangelical Christians. Gloria is so much more beautiful.

Sitting here, staring at my computer screen, I have repeatedly gone between two different emotions: one which is the definition of disgust, while the other is with a cocked head, settling that it is not too disagreeable.

That being said... I ultimately am not in favor of "Glory" as a name-- "Gloria" is splendid, however.
It merely is terribly pretentious, infantile, and drastically unprofessional. The fact that it also resembles a name dominantly penned by the Puritans is not earning any points ("Temperance," "Charity," "Prudence"... there is no time in which those should be acceptable.)

All things considered, "Glory" is the lesser sin, in most contemporary cases.

I've come across the variation "Gloree" before. It seems a little childish spelled as such, in my opinion.

The 'name' Glory was given to 86 poor little girls born in the US in 2012.
