I have severall other villages. And not all Arvanites carried Albanian names, some of them had Greek names too. I agree that Arvanites were self assimilated by their wish. I don't know about their actual percentage in the north but considering Arvanites in the south were not hellenized it is easy to see that their percentage was not the same in the south as in the north.
Lichada is a settlement with a name that is traced to Greek antiquity. It comes from Heracle's servant Lichas, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lichas, which is also responsible for the local mountain Lichas and the neighboring 7 islands Lichades, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lichades. It wasn't an Albanian settlement, let alone earlier on since this image is dated to 1807 which is contemporary to the aforementioned censuses. I don't know from which source these name are taken but they were obviously written differently. If you know the source i would like to go through it. As they are written now it is difficult to make sense of most, but of the ones you have boldened, "Kursari" looks like the Greek word κουρσάρος (koursaros), which is etymologically traced to Italian corsaro and it means pirate. As for the Arvanite looking ones, as aforementioned Arvanites would move freely throughout the island, but the settlements at the northern side were Greek that's why they weren't classified as Arvanite. Greek names suggest Greek origin, same as Arvanite names suggest Arvanite origin. This isn't absolute, but suggestive and both can be found in the north and in the south likewise.
