Given the lateness of the forms of this name, the only certain thing that can be said about it is that it contains the word ‘head’ (and even then we cannot be sure whether it is SSE head or Sc heid). If Glasslie- is the correct first element, it may be compared with Glasslie FAL (vol. 2), which appears as Glasle in 1431.

/ˈglaslɪ hɛd/, locally /ˈglaslɪ hid/ or /ˈglɛslɪ hid/
