McCrum Family HistoryThis interesting surname is of Scottish origin, and is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "MacChruim", composed of the elements "Mac", meaning "son of", and the personal byname "Crum", meaning twisted, bowed. This byname would originally have been given as a nickname to someone who was stooped, or to one who carried heavy loads. The creation of surnames from nicknames was a common practice in the Middle Ages, and many modern-day surnames derive from medieval nicknames referring to personal characteristics.
