Crispin is a boy’s name of Latin origin. It derives from the Roman surname Crispinus, which came from the Latin word crispus, meaning “curly-haired.” If your little one has a beautiful head of curly hair, this could be the perfect name for them! St. Crispin and St. Crispinian were twins who were martyred in the third century, and are now the patron saints of shoemakers and tanners. A modern-day bearer of the name is actor Crispin Glover, who played George McFly in Back to the Future.
