The distinguished and ancient German surname Krinn is of two possible origins. Firstly, the name is derived from the Middle High German word "krinne," meaning "curled, frizzy"; in this instance, the name would have been initially bestowed as a nickname on someone with curly hair. Alternatively, the name may be derived from the German word "krinne," meaning "grove" or "watercourse." In this case, the progenitor of the name would have been someone who lived by a watercourse.
