Old French personal name Crispin, Latin "Crispinus," a family name derived from "crispus" meaning "curly-haired" (see Crisp). This name was especially popular in France in the early Middle Ages, having been borne by a saint who was martyred at Soissons in AD c. 285 along with a companion, Crispinianus (whose name is a further derivative of the same word).
