About the Santos surname

The Santos surname my family carry came from the Delos Santos surname from Gapan, Nueva Ecija, Philippines which is reflected on my and my brother's Birth Certificate.

Note: The Delos surname referred above is a substantiation of the Spanish "de" + "los" (proposition plus article); thus it is a connector particle similar to the German 'Von' or the Arabic 'Ibn'...

Also Santos (which literally means the 'Holy Ones') is a rather common surname in both Spain and Portugal, as well as in all territories that were once under their extensive colonial influence.
