SANTOS Family History

Derived from the orginal Roman (Latin) "sanctus" meaning blameworthy, this surname is best described as being of early European origins. It is recorded in every Christian country and in over forty individual spellings from Saint (English), Sant and Saunt (French), Santos and Sains (Spanish), Sainteau and Saintin (French), Santucci and Santello (Italian), and Santesson (Swedish), the name was originally a nickname for a pious person or perhaps, given the robust humour of the period - the complete reverse! It was also sometimes locational as in the Spanish and Portugese surnames of De Santos, De los Santos and the fused form of Dossantos, all of which describe a person who came from a place called Santos or similar, the original home of a saint or a place that in commemorates a saint.
