Rohlfs 88 is very questionable, suggesting the derivation from the toponym Crescimanno in the province of Agrigento (which does not exist) or, in doubtful form, from the Neapolitan criscemunno = growth (?). More likely the Germanic derivation, originally perhaps Kressmann / Cressmann, on whose interpretation there are several theories: according to one, the name would come from the term Kresse, a type of fish, according to another would come from the Slavic and would have the same origin as the surname Polish Karczmarz (host). The surname Kretschmann also comes from the Slavic term 'kretscham' = tavern.
