GeekEmad added a comment to T70207: Changing fall-back language and language name for aeb (Tunisian Language).

The current Arabic spelling in MediaWiki is "Tûnsî". In the Incubator I also see "Tūnsī". How do you see in the corpus that "Tounsi" is more popular?

Well, this is a pretty old one. I was 15 when I opened the original ticket, so I probably didn't know much at the time.
Anyways, Tunisian Arabic has no standard writing system. Its native speakers rely on several ad-hoc systems for communicating, so it's hard to give a single correct spelling.
Tunisiya is a corpus of Tunisian Arabic texts that include data scraped from online forums, so it can be helpful here. Based on that source, the most popular Latin spelling is Tounsi and the most popular Arabic spelling is تونسي.
The Hebrew script is used by Tunisian Jews and officially supported by the government [citation needed], but I'm not sure if Judeo Tunisian shares the same ISO code as Tunisian Arabic. If that's the case, the Hebrew spelling would (probably) be תונסי.
