Anyhow, if the Glückbsborgs have not been able to change their dynastic name, then there is a parallel with Queen Elisabeth of England who would not have to worry if her decendants would be Mountbatten-Winsor, they would be Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha-Schleswig-Holstein-Sřnderborg-Glucksburg (or Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha-Oldenburg). And certainly NOT Saxe-Coburg, since that place is in Germany, and German at the time was much more widely spoken than English.
I guess Edward VII had no problem in anglicizing his father's name to start the dynasty.
The spanish Bourbons spanicized (?) their name by removing the "u", while their italian cousins choosed to be named Borbone
