In North America this name has no doubt assimilated cognates from other European languages, notably German Grün ( see Gruen ).2 Jewish (American): Americanized form of German Grün or Yiddish Grin, Ashkenazic ornamental names meaning ‘green’ or a short form of any of the numerous compounds with this element.3 Irish: translation of various Gaelic surnames derived from glas ‘gray’, ‘green’, ‘blue’.
