Krom Early Origins



The surname Krom was first found in Silesia and Bohemia, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation and would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. The name Kroh or Krohe was common in mediaeval Germany, as it meant "grau" (in English, "grey"). Chronicles mention Dietrich Kro of Prague in 1411. The endings "-er," "-man," "-meier," "-mayer," and "-au" were often quite interchangeable in early German names, and chronicles first mention Peter Kromer of Liegnitz in 1381.
