You mention that "Pasha
" is a "middle name" of Ali Pasha
=> First of all, "Tepelena" is *not* a surname, it is the name of Tepeleni, a town in northern Epirus where Ali
was a Turkish Pasha
=> His "middle name" was not Pasha
, and he was not Albanian.
As a historical sidenote, Ali
was appointed by the Turks Pasha
(military governor) to Trikala in 1787 (presently a Greek town) but eventually seized power in Ioannina (presently in Epirus, Greece). At the height of his power, he ruled Epirus, Aitoloakarnania and half of the modern Albania (i.e. an area with a population of about 1,500,000). His renegade tactics and secessionist ambitions upset his fellow Ottoman rulers, who eventually defeated him militarily and killed him in battle.
