Origins Available: Portuguese, Spanish


The Espirito santo surname is derived from the Latin word "sanctus," which meant "blameless" or "holy," and is also the root of the English word "Saint." Thus the first bearers of this name were most likely strongly religious. It is also thought that this name was sometimes given to those born on All Saints' Day.

Espirito santo Early Origins



The surname Espirito santo was first found in Andalucia, a vast region that once encompassed much of the Southern part of the Iberian peninsula.
