* It's sometimes assumed that Thomas Crapper perfected the flushing lavatory, it was called a "crapper" after him, and that's where the word "crap" comes from. The word "crap" was first recorded in 1846, when Thomas was nine. (Creator/TerryPratchett's theory is that he was teased at school and decided to make being a Crapper something to be proud of.)

"Crap" actually comes from the Dutch ''krappe'' "the residue remaining from the rendering-down of fat", and for a long time in British English simply meant "rubbish"; the coarser meaning was added later, and likely is indeed a back-association from Crapper.)
