Name Meaning

1 German and Swiss German: metonymic occupational name for a catcher or seller of crabs or shellfish or a nickname for someone thought to resemble a crab, perhaps because they had a peculiar gait. The name was certainly standardized from older variants like Krevetes or Krebiss which reflect Middle Low German crevet ‘crab’, ‘shrimp’, as well as Middle High German krebez.2 Jewish (Ashkenazic): ornamental name from German Krebs ‘crab’ (see 1).3 Danish: from krebs ‘crayfish’.
