The distinguished surname Pantalone can be traced back to the ancient and beautiful region of Venice. Although people were originally known only by a single name, it became necessary for people to adopt a second name to identify themselves as populations grew and travel became more frequent. The process of adopting fixed hereditary surnames was not complete until the modern era, but the use of hereditary family names in Italy began in the 10th and 11th centuries. Italian hereditary surnames were developed according to fairly general principles and they were characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. The most common type of family name found in the region of Venice is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name. During the Middle Ages, Italians adopted the patronymic system of name-making because it perfectly complemented the prevailing Feudal System. In Italy the popularity of patronymic type of surname is also due to the fact that during the Christian era, people often named their children after saints and biblical figures. The surname Pantalone came from Saint Pantaleo.

Pantalone Early Origins



The surname Pantalone was first found in 1004, when the Pantaleoni family moved from Greece to Venice. The name became a popular personal name in the times before surnames in part due to the popularity of Saint Pantaleon, who lived in the 4th century, in present day Turkey.

Spelling variations were the unsurprising result. The variations of Pantalone include Pantaleo, Pantaleone, Pantaleoni, Pantalone, Pantaloni and many more.
