Meaning & History

From Ancient Greek Κρήτη (Krete) of uncertain meaning. It may come from Krus, a mythological hero, whose name is unexplained. Another theory is that it is derived from Luwian kursawar meaning "island" or kursattar meaning "cutting, sliver". This is the name of an island in the Mediterranean Sea and the largest of all the Greek islands.
