Name Meaning

1 English: from Middle English crouch, Old English crūc ‘cross’ (a word that was replaced in Middle English by the word cross, from Old Norse kross), applied either as a topographic name for someone who lived by a cross or possibly as a nickname for someone who had carried a cross in a pageant or procession.2 Dutch: from Middle Dutch croech ‘jug’, ‘pitcher’, hence a metonymic occupational name for a potter.
