The surname Papaleo is derived from the Italian word papa, which means Father or Pope. The surname Papaleo is a common occupational name for a person who was in some way associated with an ecclesiastical office, either as an employee or as a Father. It was only after an occupation was inherited by several generations in lineal descent that occupational names came to be applied to entire families, and so became a hereditary surname.

Papaleo Early Origins



The surname Papaleo was first found in Messina (Sicilian: Missina; Latin: Messana), capital of the Italian province of Messina, where they were long established.
