The Santos surname and its derivatives (de los Santos, de Santos, dos Santos, Santo) was one of the most used surnames by the newly-Christiniazed Filipinos when the Spaniards came to the islands. Translated, it means "saints".

The (de los) Santos Family was included in "The Manila 60", as published in the 1950s by society writer Torrosa Subido. The list comprised of the fabulously wealthy families, as well as those that made contributions to society. These old families pride themselves in the legacy of grace and refinement.

This sub-project aims to organize genealogical data on the (de los) Santos Family of the Philippines. Profiles here are those of historical figures, scions of the gentry (de buena familia), revolutionary heroes, scholars, government officials, national athletes and other public personalities (celebrities) in various fields. Find more surnames at the master project page, Families of the Philippines.
