Meaning & History
From the traditionally English habitational surname, from the Old Norse kross "cross" and býr "farm, settlement". Could also come from the Scottish surname taken as an anglicized form of the Gaelic Mac an Chrosáin meaning "son of the satirist", from the Gaelic crosán 'reciter of satirical verse, satirist' (originally a cross bearer in a religious procession).
