Name Meaning

English and French: nickname for a particularly pious individual, from Middle English, Old French saint, seint ‘holy’ (Latin sanctus ‘blameless’, ‘holy’). The vocabulary word was occasionally used in the Middle Ages as a personal name, especially on the Continent, and this may have given rise to some instances of the surname.
