Krass Name Meaning
German: from krasse, which in Middle Low German meant ‘shrimp’, ‘prawn’, but in early modern German came to denote the gudgeon; it may therefore have been a nickname for someone who was small and active or stubborn and thick-headed. German (Kräss): from the Slavic personal name Kres.
