Santi Family HistoryThis most interesting and unusual surname is of Old French and early medieval English origin, and is derived from a nickname for a notably pious individual, from the Middle English, Old French "saint, seint", from the Latin "sanctus", blameless, holy. The vocabulary word was occasionally used in the Middle Ages as a given name, especially on the Continent, where it has given rise to the following instances: Sant (France), Sa(i)ns (France), Sant(i) (Italy), Santo (Italy), and Santos (Spain). The name was introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066, where it is also found as Saint, Sant and Sants.
