If you're looking for a name as rich in history and natural beauty as the Scottish highlands, Glenden might be the perfect choice. This moniker is derived from the Gaelic gleann ("valley.") Glenden is a variant of the Scottish surnames Glendon and Glyndon, translating to "from the dark glen" or "settlement in the glen" in English. It first appeared in written records in the 13th century and has an alternate translation of "one who came from Glendinning," which in turn means "glen on the fair hill." This moniker could be a beautiful tribute to honor your little one's Scottish heritage.
