Comments:АПиПЯЯ 69, 110, 276, EAS 51. The verbal correlate for *naN 'name' in PJ is *nǝm- 'to pray'. The noun goes back to the suffixed form *ĺi̯ŏ́m(o)-ŋa (note the recurring *-ŋ-suffix in the reflexes: MKor. nì'jàkì also goes back to *nìŋa-ki < *nimŋa-ki with early cluster simplification). Despite Щербак 1997, 124-125, Mong. cannot be < Turk.
