Tocharian has (B) ñakte, (A) ñkät, Gen. ñäktes 'deity', sometimes
regarded as connected with *wanakt-, as Mark Odegard once pointed out
on this list.

A correction: actually, Mark mentioned Tocharian A na:täk, pl.
na:cki 'lord', na:s'i 'lady', not the "god" word cited above (and
also worth considering). The EIEC reconstructs a tentative PIE *w(n)
natk- > Greek wanak(t)-.
