The Allentown Hosni family spells their surname (حصني) [hsny, with a stronger pharyngealized s (saad)], This comes from the Arabic word hsn (حصن), meaning fortress or citadel. This word is used in the name Krak des Chevaliers (حصن الفرسان), a Crusader castle near Homs.
Husni in principle could also be written (حسني) [also hsny, but with the weaker s (siin)], but no one in Homs spells it that way. This comes from the Arabic word hsn (حسن), meaning beauty, excellence, goodness.
