I need some help deciphering (what I assume) is an Arabic name.

So I've befriended the guy at my favorite falafel joint but I just cannot understand what his name is. He says it so fast. I've asked the other guys who work there and it's just as incomprehensible coming out of their mouths. Everyone there has given up on me ever getting it right.
I hear what I guess I'd spell out as 'Hana-Nouf'. But I think there might be more syllables. I obviously can't really tell. The 'h' at the beginning has a bit of a guttural sound. Other than that, the dominant impression is speed. It comes out real quick.
The only other thing I can tell you is that he's from Algeria. Anyone have a clue?
