That is very unlikely unless the name you choose to use for publication is very common in the field that you work in. In the US, a person named "John Smith" might need to distinguish himself in a field with a lot of practitioners. Otherwise, I see no problem.
Another consideration is how formal you want to be. If you are a young academic building a reputation, it might be advantage to err on the side of formality rather than the opposite. As you grow into the profession and meet lots of people, etc., you can move to a less formal name if you would then want to. Some academics I know insist on being represented in print very formally so as to build a "brand". In person they are not formal at all.
However, since names like el Masri, indicate places, Timmy el Masri might not be very distinguishing (assuming lots of Egyptians are named Timmy). So think about that. Icelandic (and old Norwegian) surnames names are traditionally also not especially distinguishing: Lavransdottir (daughter of Lavrans).
I share a real name with another academic. Fortunately he is not in the same field. We are unlikely to be confused. An internet search on our common name can confuse people, however.
