Help with Arabic names

I am currently working on a version of a late 19th century Spanish play, "Aben Humeya", about the Morisco Revolt. Several of the character names are Hispanized from the Arabic and I would like to return to the originals, though I think one of them might not make any sense:

-Zulema
-Aben Farax (clearly Aben is a Hispanization of Ibn)
-Aben Abó (this is the one I think makes no sense)
-Aliatar

Thanks very much for any help possible in advance.
