The name Craig is a masculine name of Scottish, Gaelic, and Welsh origins, meaning "rock" or "rocky". Derived from the Gaelic word "creag" and the word "crag," which describes a steep, rugged cliff, the name is also associated with the Scottish surname Craig. The surname was originally used for households living close to a crag, hence the meaning "dweller by the crag". In the 20th century, the Scottish introduced the modern given name Craig, which eventually gained cross-over success in all English-speaking countries. Some famous people named Craig include Craig Ferguson, a Scottish actor, and comedian, and Craig Cameron Mello, an American biologist who received the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 2006.
