This article is about the Mesopotamian goddess; for the Telugu author see Nannayya. For the Tsukihime character, see Shiki Nanaya.
Nanaya (Sumerian 𒀭𒈾𒈾𒀀, NA.NA.A; also transcibed as Nanâ, Nanãy or Nanãya; in Greek: Nαναια or Νανα; Aramaic: ננױננאױ) is the canonical name for a goddess worshipped by the Sumerians and Akkadians, a deity who personified "voluptuousness and sensuality". Her cult was large and was spread as far as Syria and Iran. She later became syncretised with the Babylonian Tashmetum.
