Crofoot Name Meaning
Scottish: variant of Crawford. English: variant of Crowfoot, a nickname for someone with splayed feet or some other deformity of the foot, from Old English crawe ‘crow’ + fot ‘foot’. In Middle English crou-fot also denoted the buttercup, and it may be from this sense that the name arose, although the reason for its adoption is unclear.
