Meaning & History
Possibly means "vineyard of God" (or "God is my vineyard") from Hebrew כֶּרֶם (kérem) "vineyard of" and יָהּ (yah) "Yahweh". Alternatively it may be from the surname of Adolphe Crémieux (1796-1880), a French-Jewish statesman, or from the name of Crémieu, an historic Jewish community in France.
