Its Portuguese not spanish btw, it comes from the amalgamation of Santo- meaning saint, and Tiago- meaning james, so you were correct about the meaning Fullon, just wrong language, James is jaime in spanish.
I know this as my name is james sant. And I was just in brazil, where they speak Portuguese, and the people we were with were explaining all of this, and why the called me Saint James in Portuguese: Santo Tiago
hope this helps
