Looks like your 5th letter is wrong Janie.

EGERIA = E(ast)+ GERIA (Nigeria with Ni ignored)

From Wikipedia:
"Egeria was a water nymph in Roman mythology. She was most famously the second wife and counselor of the second king of Rome, Numa Pompilius."

Thanks, BF, you're right.

I got CANTATA for 'Speech that's affected in a bar', when it should have been CANTINA. Hmmm, think mine would've worked just as well as an answer!
