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.

The surname Krinn was first found in Bohemia, where it is believed to have first emerged during the Middle Ages.The young Krinn family was instrumental during this formative period, figuring prominently in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval Bohemian society.
