Subject: Arabic surname meaning? (re-post)

Sorry for re-posting, but I think this got lost...

I am considering using a certain surname in a story, and I'm aware that meaning in names can be important in Middle Eastern culture.

My question is, what does the surname "el-Akouri" mean, and if a person versed in Arabic heard this name, where would they believe this person likely to be from?
