French translation:grenouille casquée
Explanation:
nasique is a kind a monkey (proboscis monkey) and the term refers to a big/long nose (nas-) not to anything pertaining to the head.I would assume the name was originally a translation from the French. Although I'm by no means sure of the translation casquée would make perfect sense.Hope this helps somewhat.
