Meaning & History

Possibly derived from Middle High German krum(b) meaning "crooked" and rein meaning "border of a field, margin", and hence a topographic name for someone who lived by a field with a crooked edge, or perhaps a nickname for a farmer who plowed a crooked furrow. Alternatively, the name may be from the old given name Rumerich, derived from Old High German hruom meaning "fame".
