What is the first name of Santiago in Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea"?

I'm not sure that he has a first name. He is listed simply as Santiago both in the Larousse Dictionary of Literary Characters and in Seth Godin's Encyclopedia of Fictional People. But you need to check the book itself to be certain on the matter.

It's a while since I read the book but I don't think he has any name, not even Santiago. Certainly in the 1958 film version he is known simply as the old man. In the 1990 film he's called Santiago. Jack Flash's advice is sound, as usual.
