Lebanon Genealogy Forum
I would suggest finding out what part of Lebanon your family was from. Once you know that, hopefully you can find some old timers (and surely some not so old timers)from that place that should know how the surname is pronounced and spelled in Arabic. There is to my knowledge no standard way of transliterating a written Arabic word into English.
I once told a young Palestinian woman about a family from Bethlehem whose surname in Central America is pronounced Cawas. She told me it is pronounced Cawash.
