#189538 - Wiki gives a hint
Responding to: Neha Saxena's previous message
Neha Saxena said:
What does CR indicates as reference designator for diode?

You mean why do some Schematics show CR1 (etc) for Diodes

Wiki : In 1874 German scientist Karl Ferdinand Braun discovered the "unilateral conduction" of crystals.[10] Braun patented the crystal rectifier in 1899

that suggests CR has the root in the terminology Crystal Rectifier
