i was coming to fix my answer because i left out calm mind then i saw this :P
Why is it called the Legendary CroCune?
Named after the person who made the set, I think it was Cromat.
It is legendary in the sense that it is one of the most well known sets in Pokemon competitive.
The SET is CroCune, not the Pokemon.

CroCune is a special Suicune set that takes advantage of its amazing bulk and RestTalk to pretty much own teams lacking a phazer or a solid counter. There are a few variations, Calm Mind + Scald being the most common one, or Roar + Scald.

Pretty much, Suicune is fully invested in defense, letting it tank physical hits easily. It can then use Calm Mind to boost up its Special Defense, so after a couple of boosts, it's pretty much unbreakable barring a critical hit. What sets it apart is that, unlike many other bulky sweepers, it has Rest and Sleep Talk, giving it reliable recovery and pretty much immune to status like Toxic poison that would normally cripple it. Scald is the main STAB attack and the burn chance just increases Suicune's staying power and ability to stall out most attackers with residual damage.
