[ 2 syll. cro-mwel(l), cr-omwe-ll ] The baby boy name Cromwell is pronounced KRAAMWehL- †. Cromwell has its origins in the Old English language and it is used largely in English. The first name is derived from the famous English surname Cromwell; the latter has also been recorded in early forms such as Cromwella and Crombewelle. The surname is itself taken from the name of the town of Cromwell in Nottinghamshire, England. The place name is ultimately composed of the Old English elements crumb and waell (meaning 'pool, stream, spring, well'); thus it means 'winding stream'. The surname is famously borne by Oliver Cromwell (1599-1658), who gave his name to the Cromwellian period of Puritan zeal.
