"I was actually named after my dad, his name was Glendon. Funny thing is I married a guy named Glen. It isn't a very common name and is frequently mispronounced as in Brenda, Linda, Wanda, Lucinda, Belinda. If it had a "da" on the end of the name, I usually answered to it. I will admit, I didn't care for my name when I was growing up, I felt like my sisters all had pretty names while I was stuck with a dud. But after I grew up I discovered I liked my uncommon name even if I do have to correct people and spell it over the phone for them a lot of times." Sep. 22, 2020:

"Glenda has been a difficult name to be saddled with. Brenda was a more popular name when I was a young person, so I got called that ALOT. It is a name of an age, so it dates me. Close friends and family call me Glen." Mar. 20, 2020:
"Here in 2019, I have met one other Glenda. All of my life they called me "Glinda" the good witch. Sometimes I care enough to tell them that her name and my name are different and said differently.
I didn't like the name when I was young but I absolutely love it now." Dec. 3, 2019:
