Is it meant to be ancient Greek or modern? They're pronounced somewhat differently. If it's ancient (which I'm guessing not), it would be something like "pap-eye-oh-an-oo". If it's modern, er, I'm pretty iffy with modern. "Pap-eh-oh-an-oo", maybe.

This site has a pronunciation guide.

It's the last name of one of our authors. Would the stresses be on the "pap" and "an" syllables?

That's my instinct, but I can't back it up.

Hi, got referred by magid. The approximate pronunciation is Pa-pa-yo-AH-noo. (The stress is on the penultimate syllable.)
