My recollection from asking Gerald Wilson a few years ago is that the
name is pronounced "NAHN-yah", and that it was the name of the family
cat. This sound right to those who know?

This may have come up before--what is the accepted way to pronounce the
last two words of Gerald Wilson's "Blues for Yna Yna"?

Many thanks,
