This is my first response to the list so excuse me if I am
misunderstanding the complexity of your inquiry...
GUNH is nom. sing. for the stem GUNAIC for the same reason ANHR is the
nom. sing. for the stem ANDR-, they are 3rd Decl. nouns and as such are
irregular by nature. There is no inconsistancy. Most Greek nouns are of
this irregular Declension.
