Creed Name Meaning
Southern Irish: reduced form of Creedon. English: from the Old English personal name Creoda. English: habitational name from Creed Farm in Bosham, Sussex, so named with an Old English word crede ‘weeds’, ‘plants’. In part the surname may perhaps have arisen from a place called Creed in Cornwall, named for the patron saint of the church, St. Cride.
