Santos is basically a Portuguese or Spanish word. In English it literally means Saints. This name stands a surname and is also considered to be a very widespread surname. It is a very common surname in Spain as in the Spanish language, but is not considered to be that widespread in Portuguese. Sometimes it is even preceded by the constituent part dos or de los, which in English means of the, meaning of the Saints, as in Miguel dos Santos, Michael of the Saints.

Some of the very famous personalities that hold this very name are Cristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro (Portuguese footballer), Nílton Santos (Brazilian footballer) and Lucélia Santos (Brazilian actress, director and producer).

In Spanish Santos means either a spirit of a dead person or a person who was a saintly person. It means saint. For ex: San Marcos in spanish means Saint Mark in English.
