Embrace baby’s inner depths with the name Glyn. This lovely gender-neutral name has roots in Welsh, Irish, and Gaelic, and means “glen” or “valley of water.” Glyn derives from the Welsh name Glyndwr and the Gaelic word gleann, and offers something distinctly different from the more traditional Welsh choices like Gwen or Bryn. Glyn has been used as both a surname and a given name, and some notable namesakes include Welsh poet and musician Gwyneth Glyn, Welsh soccer manager Glyn Hodges, and famous record producer Glyn Johns, who worked with the likes of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and The Rolling Stones.
