Kron Name Meaning
German, Dutch, and Swedish: from Middle High German kron(e) ‘garland’, ‘chaplet’, ‘diadem’, Swedish krona (from Latin corona). As a German surname it may have been a habitational name for someone who lived in a house with this sign or a nickname for a bald or tonsured man. The Swedish surname, on the other hand, is probably an ornamental name. Jewish (Ashkenazic): variant of Krone. Jewish (Ashkenazic): metronymic from the Yiddish personal name kroyne, a derivative of Yiddish kroyn ‘crown’.
