    Name Meaning

    Irish (Cork and Limerick): shortened form of Creedon , or a shortened variant of McCrudden through confusion with the Munster name Mac Críodáin (or Ó Críodáin).

    English: habitational name from Creed Farm in Bosham, Sussex, so named with the Old English word crēde ‘weeds, plants’. In some cases the surname may be derived from the name of a place called Creed in Cornwall, named for the patron saint of the church, Saint Cride.

    English: from the Middle English personal name Crede (from Old English Crēoda, the name of a Mercian king, of unexplained etymology).
