Sante Family HistoryThis most interesting and unusual surname is of Old French origin, and is a nickname for a particularly pious individual, from the Old French "sant", Anglo-French "seint", Middle English "seint, saint", a saint (ultimately from the Latin "sanctus", blameless, holy). The word was occasionally used in the Middle Ages as a given name, especially on the Continent, and this may have given rise to some instances of the surname. This surname is an example of that sizeable group of early European surnames that were gradually created from the habitual use of nicknames.
