Origin of the name NAOS.
Etymology of the name NAOS.
Meaning of the baby name NAOS.

  

NAOS.  A Scottish form of Irish Nessa (q.v.), probably meaning "a nymph."  Son of Usnach, and lover of Deirdre.  Also spelled Naoise, which see.

    The name Naise is evidently an Irish importation.  We have already seen that Nessa was father of Conor, king of Ireland, who flourished before the Christian era.  In the Scottish episode of Deirdri, his name is variously spelled, Naise, Snaois, Naois, Nais, Naos, and Nathos.  (Macpherson traces his pedigree to Usnoth, lord of Eta, by Slissima, the daughter of Semo, and sister to the celebrated Cuchullin.) (Memorials of Argyleshire, Brown, 1889).
