This name derives from the Latin “Glōrĭa”, meaning “glory, fame, renown, great praise or honor, good reputation, desire for glory, noble action and, in Christian circles, a reference to the divine glory”. Gloria in excelsis Deo (Glory to God in the highest) is a hymn known also as the Greater Doxology (as distinguished from the "Minor Doxology" or Gloria Patri) and the Angelic Hymn. Gloriana was the name given by the 16th-century poet Edmund Spenser to his character representing Queen Elizabeth I in his poem The Faerie Queene.
