I am a descendent of the Arnaouts who immigrated to Egypt. I changed the spelling of my name though from Arnaout to Arnaaote, and as the custom in Egyptian or in Arabic names generally, the 'el' is sometimes added to family name; so my name now became Elarnaaote.
I would like to get more information on the Arnaouts and whether they come from a particular part in Albania.
I would like to visit Albania one day and would like to go to the area where I'm originally from.
