More than 50,000 people applied for 15,000 roles at the event, including result recording, overseeing athletes' travel arrangements and directing people to the Games venues.
Glasgow 2014 wants to create a group similar to the ''Games makers'' at London 2012 who helped to make the Olympics such a success.
The first volunteers for the Games have been chosen but, with a total of 25,000 people being interviewed, the final list will not be completed until the end of the year.
The name Clyde-siders was chosen by organisers and is a nod to Glasgow's River Clyde which runs through the city.
Many Glaswegians who lived and worked in the shipyards along the river during its ship-building heyday were known as Clydesiders.
Glasgow 2014 chair Lord Smith said: "The Clyde-siders, as our volunteers are to be known, will be the friendly faces of the Games, the first point of contact for many people, and are bound to inject their personalities into the event.
"Glasgow 2014 fully appreciates the time and commitment shown by all candidates who were selected for interview for what is Scotland's largest-ever peacetime recruitment drive.
"I am confident those selected will enjoy what is a fantastic opportunity to become a part of the Games and will help to deliver its success."
One of the first confirmed Clyde-siders is retired 66-year-old Lindsay Barr, from Clarkston, Glasgow.
He will be part of a team that maintains the results-recording technology at the different Games venues.
He said: "I was born, brought up and spent most of my working career in Glasgow before retiring and decided to volunteer for Glasgow 2014 to give something back to the city that has shaped my life.
"This is the biggest event Glasgow has hosted in my lifetime and I want to be part of something which showcases our city and allows me to share the thrills and excitement with my grandchildren.
"I have been involved in volunteering since my twenties and been heavily involved with Giffnock Tennis, Squash and Hockey club. I have also led a musical group for more than 20 years.
"As a runner in my youth, I've always had a keen interest in athletics. I'm looking forward to world-class athletes competing on my doorstep and it will be inspiring to work alongside people from all over the Commonwealth with the common aim of being the best we can be."
Some volunteers for the Games worked at the Olympics last year.
Student Emma Blore, from Dumfries and Galloway, worked as a supervisor for football teams visiting Glasgow for the 2012 matches at Hampden.
She said: "I was really overjoyed when I found out and I can't wait to tell people now.
"I'm looking forward to the atmosphere, I've already been inside the velodrome when there's a competition on and it's just electric, so I can't wait to see the whole of Glasgow when the Games are here."
Joanne Grant, from Carluke, South Lanarkshire, is looking forward to the atmosphere when she volunteers at the Games.
"I've always had an interest in sport so when the opportunity came I just had to go for it," she said.
"London 2012 was a big inspiration but I also worked at the International Children Games and the amazing atmosphere there made me want to be part of Glasgow.
"I went to the Olympic football at Hampden last year and the Games makers there just enthused everybody, they were so excited about it all, and I just hope I can do that for Glasgow.
"I was at the 10k yesterday and the atmosphere there was great, so I can only imagine what it's going to be like next year."
Once all the volunteers have been chosen they will start training to get ready for the Games, which start on July 23 next year.
Valerie Mitchell, head of the Games 2014 workforce, said: "This is a massive milestone for us, it was important that it was our volunteers that came up with the name.
"We started interviews in April seeing around 1,000 people a week, so it's massive to be able to tell people now if they have a role at the Games, and that will continue right up until January next year.
"In March we start training with everyone and that will continue until July with people being split into specific roles and venues."
