Crispin History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, French


Noble surnames, such as Crispin, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the French people. The original bearer of the name Crispin, 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 names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Crispin family originally lived at the town of Paresse or Parez, in the Lorraine. 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.
