A very old family name in the country of Lebanon. Lebanese people with this family name usually originate from East Beirut in the triangle of resistance which contains the cities of Furn El Chebbak, Ta7weeta and Ain El Rummaneh. Because the war started in these 3 areas and all the Christian militias had soldiers located there, the three areas formed a triangle of resistance. Its just happens to be before the war started majority of the Lebanese with the last name Zabbal happened to live in these areas. Frankly I lived beside a Zabbal family, very warm and welcoming family through my experiences.
Last Names That Originate From Lebanon: Haddad, Gemayel, Franjieh, Nassif, Bishara, Gibran, Helu, Azar, Wehbe, Kassar, Tawil. And of course the very uncommon last name Zabbal.
