Has he ever asked the grandfather how he came up with the name?
It has the form of many newly created names. If it's an alteration of Nayland, however, Nayland is originally an English surname which, according to Reaney & Wilson's A Dictionary of English Surnames, meant "dweller at the island". It sometimes indicates ancestry from the place called Nayland in Suffolk, England. The place name also means "at the island".
