History Severna Park was named for the Severn River, which runs through the town. The river's name is derived from a combination of two sources: "sev-" (Latin), meaning "seven", and "-ern" (Old English), meaning "north". Thus, it means that there are seven northern rivers in Maryland. It is also said to be named after the Seven Sisters mountain range in its area; however, this theory has been disputed by local historians who believe that it was actually called so because of its location on Route 50 between Baltimore and Annapolis. According to an article published by The Capital newspaper on January 15th 2017: “The origin of Severna Park’s name may have nothing to do with either source… Instead, according to local historian John Hammond Moore — author of “A History Of Anne Arundel County” — a man named James Blythe bought land along what would become Route 50 near where today’s Glen Burnie High School sits.
