ORIGIN AND HISTORY

Glen or Glenn was originally a surname derived from the Irish/Scottish Gaelic word gleann for the area in or contribution it makes to a valley. As with many surnames, Glenn became popular as a first name in the 1800s when its role as a surname diminished in certain family lines through marriages. Glen is most popular in English speaking countries. [1]

FACTS

Glenn is a very common and popular as a first name in the western parts of Sweden. Currently, this is especially true in Gothenburg – a city founded by Napoleon and later home of Sweden’s biggest seaport and prison. Gothenburg also hosts the local football team IFK Göteborg. During the early 1980s, IFK Göteborg had no less than four players named Glenn, including Glenn Hysén. As a result, supporters of opposing teams named and would repeat a chant called "Alla heter Glenn i Göteborg" (Everybody’s name is Glenn in Gothenburg). [1]
