Kritikos Name Meaning
Greek: ethnic name for a Cretan, someone from the island of Crete, from an adjectival derivative of Kriti ‘Crete’. In the Ionian islands the ethnic name acquired the secondary meaning ‘good-for-nothing’, ‘scrounger’, after the large number of refugees who came to the islands from Crete following its conquest by the Ottoman Turks.
