[Ed. note: In earlier times names like -schwand, Schwand(en), Schwände etc. were often misinterpreted as coming from "Schwan" (swan).
This has often turned out to be wrong, much more likely the meaning comes from the old German term "schwenden" which means clearing trees by fire.]

Since 2011 Schwanden is part of Glarus Süd commune.
