Is anyone familiar with the surname BENNANI, probably originally from
Morocco?

This name is not listed in Maurice Eithenbeth's "Les Juifs de l'Afrique du
Nord, demographie et onomastique" (Jews of Northern Africa, demography and
onomastics).
3 names could be near :
BENNADI : >from Addi (Ouaddi) a Berber name for a tribe, added with
filiation Ben.
BENHINI or BENHENI: african form for Hannoun (merciful) added with the
filiation Ben.
BENANICHE: >from Ouaniche, the Berber name for a tribe, added with filiation
Ben.
All these names are mostly found in Algeria and especially in Oran.
