Name Meaning

1 English: topographic name for someone who lived by a stone cross, from Old Norse kross ( see Cross 1) + Middle English man.2 Altered spelling of German Crossmann or Crössmann; the first may be a habitational name from any of several places called Crossen in Saxony, Brandenburg, and East Prussia, or derived from Grossmann . The second is possibly from Middle Low German krōs, krüs ‘pitcher’, and hence a metonymic occupational name for maker of these; alternatively it may be a metonymic occupational name for a butcher, from Middle High German kroese ‘tripe’.
