Shouldn't this name be listed as "feminine" in use also? Glenn Close. Sure it's a rare usage, but it's a usage nonetheless. Perhaps at least note that it's had feminine use?

Love this name. It was my grandpa's middle name and I always loved it!

This name sounds dorky and kind of old-mannish. It's not the worst name in the world, but I would never consider using it.

Glen/Glenn is a strong and simple name for a baby boy, teen and grown man. Glen//Glenn sounds dreamy too. My Grandmother's name is Glennes and I like the idea of using Glenn to honor her. I would never use this for a girl though ever. Glennes and Glenda are nice choices!

I'd like this name except all I can think of when I hear it is Dairy Glen, the brand of milk. I know it's spelled differently, but it is still pronounced the same.

I have no idea who Glenn Beck is, so that doesn't play a role in my opinion of this name. But still, I don't really like this name. I just don't really like the sound of it.

This name sounds quite... oh, let's say "glitzy."
Just because of the (in)famous bearer Glenn Beck, I would NEVER use it on a child, because to me it is synonymous with "pompous redneck idiot."
Don't name your daughter this, either. It is a masculine name.
I do, however, love the name Glynis (and other variants, likie Glenys or Glynnis) and think Glen is a lovely nickname for it.

I this name, as simple as it is, is actually pretty good. The only masculine names I hear these days are "John" "Michael" and "Robert" and names like that. You don't hear a name like "Glenn" everyday. I like it, and it has a nice ring to it. BUT ONLY ON A BOY! Because I've heard of parents naming their girls Glenn, and that sounds terrible on a girl.
Probably the most famous bearer of the name is television/radio host Glenn Beck, known best for is libertarian/conservative political views and wanting to restore honor, integrity, and God in America.

I suppose it could be an okay name, but I either think of stupid Glenn Beck or crazy Daddy Glen from Dorothy Allison's book "Bastard out of Carolina". Not very nice namesakes, to say the least...

This is a name a son can be healthy with. His parents are smart.

I just don't like it. One hard syllable. And I feel like I don't like G names in general, but who knows.
Aureliano  4/10/2010
I like this name. It's so short and simple, but strong and masculine.

I have never liked the sound of this name. It sounds gooey, sticky, and slimy.

This is my brothers name but in his case it's short for Glendon which is not on here. I love it I think it's very versatile.
