Crusoe Meaning and Origin

Crusoe is a boy’s literary name of English origin. The name Crusoe is most famously associated with the protagonist of the novel “Robinson Crusoe” by Daniel Defoe. The novel, first published in 1719, tells the story of Robinson Crusoe, a man who becomes stranded on a deserted island for many years and must learn to survive and fend for himself. The name “Crusoe” itself is of uncertain origin. Some scholars believe that it may be a corruption of the surname “Cruso,” which was a common name in England at the time the novel was written. Others speculate that the name may have been inspired by the French word “crus,” meaning “crossed”.
