    Name Meaning

    English and Irish (of Norman origin): habitational name probably from an unidentified place in Normandy named with Old French crues, crus, creus ‘hollow’. Creuse (in Somme, Picardy) and Cruys-Straëte (formerly in Flanders, now in the French département of Nord), which have the same etymology, are alternative possibilities but seem less likely on geographical and tenurial grounds.

    English: perhaps a nickname from Middle English crus(e) ‘bold, fierce’, although the regular development would be to Crowse (rhyming with house).

    North German: variant of Krause .
