To begin with the name ASHCANASI is probably the more familiar and
well recognized name ASHKENAZI.

As for the name NAEH, there are numerous listings in the Hebrew book
"Sefer Ha'Tza'A'Tzaim" by Halperin "Book of the Descendants of R'
Shneur Zalman Of Liady"

While I do not see the name "Rabbi Avraham C. NAEH" in the index, it
does not mean that it is not in the book.

Some of the names I did see are Ahuva, Aharon, Eliezer, Elchanan,
Devorah, Hadassa, Chana, Yosef Yitzchok, Michal, Moshe, Shalom,
Shlomo, Tzipora, Rivka, Esther; all with the family name NAEH.
