Etymology[edit]

From Hurrian *an-an-uḫḫə or *an-an-uγə. Compare attested Akkadian 𒌑𒀭𒈾𒉌𒄷 (/ananīḫu/, possibly mint), Ugaritic 𐎀𐎐𐎐𐎃 (ảnnḫ, mint), both considered loans from Hurrian 𒀭𒀭𒄴𒄭 (an-an-iḫ-ḫe /ananiḫḫə/). These are from the same source, with the loss of initial a-: Akkadian 𒌑𒆳𒊏 (/nīnû/, mint), Aramaic נַעְנַע(naʿnaʿ), Classical Syriac ܢܰܥܢܱܥ(naʿnaʿ), Aramaic נַנְעָא(nānʿā), Classical Syriac ܢܳܢܥܴܐ(nānʿā), Arabic نَعْنَاع(naʿnāʿ), Hebrew נַעְנַע(naʿnaʿ), Turkish nane, Armenian նանա (nana). Probably related but for a plant distinguished in each language: Akkadian 𒈾𒉌𒄷 (/naniḫu/, toothpickweed), Aramaic נָנְחָא‎ /‎ ܢܳܢܚܳܐ(nānḥā, toothpickweed, Visnaga daucoides, syn. Ammi visnaga), Ugaritic 𐎐𐎐𐎜 (nnủ, a plant mentioned in hippiatry, possibly toothpickweed).
