The town has given its name to the Cromerian Stage or Cromerian Complex, also called the Cromerian, a stage in the Pleistocene glacial history of north-western Europe.

Cromer is not mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. The place-name ‘Cromer’ is first found in a will of 1262[7] and could mean ‘Crows’ mere or lake’.[8] There are other contenders for the derivation, a north-country word ‘cromer’ meaning ‘a gap in the cliffs’ or less likely a direct transfer from a Danish placename.
