Apart from the meaning of nano itself, NANO uses Samsung's NAND, so it named NANO.
Nano denotes something small. "Nano Science" is the science of building tiny machines out of carbon molecules. They are hoping that one day these nano machines can do things like deliver drugs directly to individual cancer cells and kill the cancer cells without damaging other healthly cells. This is one application of nano technology.
It does not have anything to do with NAND from Samsung.
Probably going smaller was a good naming convention, since a swing the other direction would probably have meant naming the new device the Max iPod.
Which could probably get a little confusing, and probably spark a trademark lawsuit.
