Personal communication [GB]

Scottish and English, from the surname, itself derived from many places in Scotland named with the Gaelic element creag, "a rocky hill, a crag".

A Scottish correspondent [GB] reports a woman whose middle name was her mother's maiden surname, Craig. This is a strong Scottish tradition. However in this case the daughter was known as Craig and recorded in some official sources with Craig as her only forename.
