There is a nearby townland in the civil parish of Kilcar named Crowanrudda, which looks like a variant form of the name of this hill. However, the townland name is interpreted at logainm.ie as Ir. Cró na Roda, 'round valley of the red iron scum'.   Cruach na Rad is the 593rd highest place in Ireland.
