The distinguished surname Crotty is an Anglicization of the Irish name " Crotaigh," meaning "a descendant of Crotach," a byname for a hunchback.

Crotty Early Origins



The surname Crotty was first found in Thomond (Irish: Tuadh Mumhan), literally North Thomond, the pre-Norman Kingdom of Thomond, since divided between counties Limerick, Tipperary and Clare, where the Crotty family was anciently seated as a branch of the O'Brien Clan, whose history in Tipperary and Waterford dates back before the Norman invasion of 1172.

While the family originates in Thomond, they later migrated to east Munster. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
