Davis, there are a quarter of a million registered users on this site, are you sure you want your email address posted here? By the way, de los santos means "of the saints", whether it is someones name is another matter.
the name "delos Santos" is Portuguese. The reason being is in the spelling. In Spanish the D is capitalized and the "De" is separated from the adjective "los". There are variations of the prepostional phrase, but none (in Spanish) have the lower-case "d" connected to "los" . Hence, you have "delos Santos", which is strictly Portugese. Variations of Spanish spellings are: De Los, De Los, de Los, and de los.
Also to add, Magellen was Portuguese, but he went to King Phillip of Spain to asked if he were to be supplied with ships and crew, he would look for another route to the Spice Islands and countries (India, China, Japan, Phillippines, etc). Therefore, a good amount of his crew made up Portuguese sailors as well as Spanish ones.
I have my Masters in Linguistics and with a strong background in the history of the Spanish period in the Pacific.
