Glidden Name Meaning
English (Devon): apparently a habitational name possibly from Glidden in Hampshire, which is named from Old English gleoda ‘kite’ + dun ‘hill’. Compare Gledhill. However, the concentration of the surname in Devon suggests that it may also have arisen from another place, now lost.
