Glenda is a feminine name. Taken from the Welsh glân, it means “pure” and “good.” The name may ring a bell thanks to actress Glenda May Jackson, who is one of the few performers to achieve the American Triple Crown of Acting, with two Academy Awards, three Emmy awards, and a Tony award. Jackson’s mother named her after Glenda Farell, an actress of classic Hollywood films, an acclaimed actress herself. With such powerhouse figures fronting the name, your little one will be inspired to live up to their example.
