Multiple Origins for the Surname Santos


Portuguese


The Santos 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.

Santos Early Origins



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