Thanks, Tory.

Do you have a reference for the use of 'n''k ?  And do you know when the Hebrew form first appeared?

Yigal Levin

  It appears for the first time in the literature of the Masoretic movement
  being derived from the Aramaic 'oraita, nevi'ei ukhtivei of B. Kid. 49a.
  The original acronym was in the form 'n''k (Masoretic notes are usually 
  in Aramaic). Tanakh is the Hebrew reflection of the Masoretic term.
