Pinto is a Portuguese surname, also existent in Spanish and Italian languages. Some Indians, especially people whose family originated from Portuguese Goa, also bear this name. It can be also found among the Sephardi Jews descendants of the Jews expelled from Portugal that settled in Arab countries and the Netherlands. In England, the spelling was sometimes changed to Pinter. "Pinto" as a substantive means chick (baby chicken) in Portuguese, but everything indicates that the origin is not related to the chick but related to the other meaning of the word as an adjective Pinto can also mean painted.
