It is Lebanese and Christian. It is found in Tripoli where the surname Nahhoum is also found in the Christian community. A common root? It looks like it's a male forename as well as a surname, so it's probably patronymic. As to the meaning, I can only suggest the possibility that it is connected to the biblical names Nahum and Nehemiah. I can't find an Arabic word that would suggest a meaning, though there is a Yemeni place name, Naham, and a surname, al-Nahmi, which probably derives from the place name.
