Verified words? - 4-th edition

Here is another post of some of the "word verifications" which appeared when I commented on blogs; along with my impression of their meaning. Each one has been verified against dictionary.com and wikipedia. First edition was posted as Round 1. Today's words:

mifaryo
dictionary.com - NOT a word, suggested "Marya" (a form of Mary)
wikipedia - NOT a word, suggested "micro"
Lew's definition: mi-fa-ryo - musical scale for those of us who sing off key.

yonspa
dictionary.com - a NOT a word, suggested "NSAP" (network service access point)
wikipedia - NOT a word, suggested "yona"
Lew's definition: yon-spa - Old English for "the hot tub's out back".

unets
dictionary.com - NOT a word, suggested "enets" (the Uralic language spoken by the Yeniseian) and "units"
wikipedia - NOT a match, suggested "units"
Lew's definition: u-nets - the population of us bloggers.
