Ugh... this name makes me think of a seedy old man with greasy hair.

Actor Crispin Glover bears this name.

I love this name, it's sexy, unique and futuristic! It's everything a name should be and more. I only wish I was called Crispin. Oh well...

WOW! What a name! The CRIS is stylish and the PIN is humourous - it's a winning combination. If God had a name I have no doubt it would have been CRISPIN.

I've always loved this name, not sure why. But I'd never use it for a child - they'd get more odd looks and jokes than anyone wants. Shame, too.

Don't forget Henry the Fifth's famous St. Crispin's day speech in Shakespeare's play!

Actor Crispin Bonham-Carter (cousin of Helena) played Mr Bingley in the 1995 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. He has very curly hair!

I'm not too fond of this name. It sounds like a potato chip to me.

I like this name. It's cute for a little boy and dashing for a man. Unfortunately, it is probable that someone named Crispin would be teased to no end.

The main character in Avi's "Crispin: the Cross of Lead" is, of course, named Crispin.

Crispin is actually a short form (and the modern English form) of Crispinus. Crispinus can also be found in the Submitted Names Database.

Also, Crispin is the name of a saint from the 3rd century AD.

In the Mistmantle Chronicles by M. I. McAllister (I think that's the correct spelling of her name), one of the characters, a squirrel, is named Crispin. He starts out as a captain, but he's banished because he's falsely accused for the prince's death. He returns to Mistmantle Island after Urchin (the main character) rescues him. When the king dies, it is his duty to become the next king, which he does. He's a very noble character with a very noble name, in my opinion.

The name seems ridiculous to me. It sounds like the adjective 'crispy', and it makes me think of cereals. I remember that this was the name of some host on MTV Europe way back in 1996 and 1997, and he wasn't one of my favorites for whatever reason (I doubt I really understood what he was talking about), and I already loathed the name then.

Crispin makes me think of chicken, bacon and Crisco, but there is something that I like about it in spite of all that.

This name reminds me of 'crispy'.
daijah92  7/7/2008
I like this name a lot, but it reminds me of crunchy snacks.

Although I would never use this name, I think it is rather unusual and strange, and because of that, I - sort of, in a strange way - like it, partly, I think too its rarity and its unusual sounding-ness. :)

Crispin Freeman is a famous bearer. Freeman is a well know voice actor for many titles of anime and video games, including titles such as Hellsing, Naruto, Ghost in the Shell, Eureka 7, and The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya; to name a few.

This name makes me hungry.
Chrila96  9/10/2010
Ok, I have to agree with most of the comments... it does remind me of a potato chip or something crunchy. As far as a name, I sort of like it, but then I don't really like it at all. It sounds ok with a few other names that would be ok for someone else's kid, not mine though.

I love the name Crispin! It's my favorite name for a boy and has been for quite a while already! If I would have a boy today, he would defenitly be called Crispin Lyall NN: Crisp or Chris.
CedRG  4/15/2014
Makes me think of the song "Krispy" by Kia Shine.

If you ever name your kid Crispin, you might get sued for the trademark name infringement by potato chip manufacturers. Just a warning.
angolmois  10/25/2015
I'm sorry, I just absolutely dislike this name. It has never seemed like a real name to me and it sounds so fake and forced. It also reminds me of the word "crispy"... yuck!

As a joke, it's plain and unoriginal.
