Noble surnames, such as Crepin, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Crepin, which is a local
surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Lorraine
. In France, hereditary surnames
were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local

Although one would at first assume that the name is derived from the city of Paris, evidence suggests that the names of both the town in the Lorraine
and the French capital are derived from a Gaulish tribe called the Parisii.The name was first found in Crepey, in the department of Meurthe, in the district of Toul.
