    Name Meaning

    Irish, Manx, and English: variant of Crowe .Native American: translation into English (and shortening) of a personal name based on a word, such as Lakota or Dakota Sioux kaŋgi, meaning ‘crow’. The cultural significance of the crow to Native Americans is reflected in their traditional personal names, some of which were adopted as surnames (translated into English), e.g. Big Crow (see Bigcrow ) and Two Crow (see Twocrow ).
