As A Name
Crosby is an Irish surname worn by not only Bing Crosby but also Sidney Crosby the NFL player and David Crosby, singer-songwriter of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. The only person I could find with Crosby as a first name was Crosby Braverman, the fictional character from Parenthood. So not even a real person at all! I would say that in 10 years or so there will be more Crosby's walking around just based off the SSA popularity charts. The name debuted in the top 1000 in 2011 at #738 and is now up at #576 (2015). It means village with crosses in Irish.
