Pannone Surname

Recommended Posts

I just received an email request regarding the origin of the surname Pannone. I was asked if there is any relationship between the name and the province of Pannonia. My initial response was that Pannone seems to be unmistakeably Italian in origin, but on second thought, I'm hardly an expert on geneology or name origins. I figured it wouldn't hurt to put the question out to others who may or may not have more insight...

 

So, any insight?

According to onomatologist and lexicographer, Patrick Hanks, the surname "Pannone" is Italian in origin and is probably an augmentative of "Panno," which comes from the Italian word for "cloth; clothes; linen" and is "probably a metonymic occupational name for someone who made cloth or clothes." (Source: Dictionary of American Family Names, edited by Patrick Hanks. Oxford University Press, 2003.)

 

The name "Pannonia" is derived from a group of ancient tribes called the Pannonii. Ancient Greek historical writers referred to this and a similar tribe as the Paeones. (Source: A Classical Dictionary, Containing an Account of the Principal Proper Names Mentioned in Ancient Authors, by Charles Anthon. Harper & Bros., 1891.)
