Crain Genealogy & History

The surname Crain, distinct from the more common form Crane, was widely found on the small Isle of Man (Manx) in the Irish Sea and derives from the Old Gaelic Mac Ciarain, the son of Little Kieran, meaning the dark-colored one. The Mac Kierans were a small clan in Ireland's County Donegal. Another early recorded spelling was McCroyn, entered in 1408 into the Manx Name Register. Crain genealogy shows that the Mac prefix dropped around the late 1500s, and other variations of the name were recorded in Crain family history, including Craine, Karran, Carine, Carren, and others.
