I guess from ayana (=path, from root i, to go, with many IE cognates; often the celestial path of the sun) + anka (the n is soft like in English sing, from ac/anc/ank related to bending, going in a curve etc., anka meaning a hook or a curved part of the body, chariot, etc., especially the lap or bosom of the mother). The liaison rules make that ayanAnka.
