Nanjeeyar was a well versed advaitha scholar. Swami Parasara Bhattar defeated him in a debate and brought him into the Sri Vaishnava fold. When he took sanyashrama and went to SriRangam to be with Swami Parasara Bhattar, Bhattar fondly addresses him as here comes our jeeyar (nam jeeyar). Thats how the name cam to him
