Name Meaning

1 Scottish: variant of Crawford .2 English: variant of Crowfoot, a nickname for someone with splayed feet or some other deformity of the foot, from Old English crāwe ‘crow’ + fōt ‘foot’. In Middle English crou-fot also denoted the buttercup, and it may be from this sense that the name arose, although the reason for its adoption is unclear.
