Hadjitheodoulou

Hadji, is a title, it means that he was one of the first to go to .....the holy lands???? (I forgot where actually, but macedonia sounds familiar)My family used to have that title but my father shortened it when he came to the USA as most people do, some peope even shorten the name and just call them selves Hadji or Hadjis (very popular).
I believe the actual last name you should be looking for is Theodoulou, which is also a very popular greek name meaning "servant of God" Theo (God) Doulou (servant)
Good Luck
