It's the perfect villian name for Elijah.
The kids called him Mr. Glass.
We can breath in space,
they just don't want us to escape...

The kids been calling him Mr. Glass, because he is weak, and his bone break easily. So, Elijah is stuck with that since childhood as Mr. Glass. 'You know how I knew you? Because of the kids.' This small phrase defines Mr. Glass' life and pretty much the plot of the film.

If kids wouldn't call him Mr. Glass his whole life, he would never bother looking for a person like David Dunn. Elijah would be an ordinary man with cane his whole life. That's why he says... because of the kids.
