I can't believe this is very common. It's probably too close to the word "pantaloni", trousers.

Italian Pronunciation of "Pantaleone":

Pahn-Tah-Leyh-Ohn-Eyh

"A" as in "Father" (for both). "E" is quite close to the English greeting "Hey" (granted that the "H" is removed). "O" as usual, "Oh." And once again "E," or otherwise "Eyh." [noted -ed]

It is a derivative of the Greek name Pantaleon, which roughly translates as "all lion". My Gr-Gr-Grandfather's name was Pantaleone Rugito - and his surname may have originally been Ruggito, which is Italian for "roar", so his birth name literally means "all lion roar". He must have had quite a cry as a baby.
