I've found some people with the surname Papaevagorou. Most of them are in Limassol, and some are in Pafos and in the small villages of Akapnou and Tala. The problem with this name is that its not easy to find its origin. Evagorou means " son/daughter of Evagoras " which is a first name. Papa- means " Priest ", and when someone becomes a priest , this is added to his name ( i.e. Papamichael, Papageorgiou etc ). So this means that any man called Evagoras became a priest, he and his family got the name Papaevagorou. Nevertheless, its not a very common name and maybe I could help you if you could point me to the right direction.
