Glendora is a feminine name with a variety of potential origins and meanings. It has American roots, which can connect baby to the city of Glendora, California. Blending the names Glen and Dora, the result combines the English word glenn or Gaelic gleann, meaning “narrow valley,” with the Greek doron, meaning “gift.” Since it can be interpreted to mean “gift of the valley,” this can be a creative way to connect baby to their first home—if they’ll live by mountain ranges—or their ties to the earth. As baby explores the peaks and valleys of the world, they can look to the mountain peaks and wear Glendora with pride.
