The connection I agree with, the philology is what I am uncertain of. The egyptians new the city as Akhmim or Ipu / Khent-Menu to early egyptians and was dedicated to the god Min who was the the Egyptian personifaction of Pan.

The greeks came along much later and gave it the greek name, Panopolis probably sometime around the reign of Alexander, though it may have been called that by the greeks even earlier. This is a connection via common deities (Min / Pan) and not of philology, since the names dont actually corespond to the two languages in any way that I know of.
