Where does 'Paolantonio' name originate?

Hi, I'm Dan Paolantonio from the UK, Great-Grandson of Donato Paolantonio & Agata deDominicis of Pratola Peligna, (Aquilla) in Abruzzi. I don't have much info on my family name & wondered if anyone had any idea which area in Italy it originated. I had previously been told it was actually from Trapani in Sicily, but if any of you guys know anything more, I'd love to hear from you.

My Great-Grandparents emigrated from Abruzzi to the US circa 1900 & had 4 children: Regina, Yolanda, Inez & Domenic (my Grandpa). Will post full details of dates of birth etc next time.

Incidentally you might like to know that it was a Paolantonio who invented the famous 'Harvey Wallbanger' cocktail drink. That was my Grandpa Domenic Paolantonio (AKA Dontato 'Duke' Antone)!

Ciao for now!
