I am reading once more Guido Guarducci's book. And I noticed some interesting remarks.
1. Assyrian sources constantly distinguishes Nairi from Uruatri. The reasons for this are unknown. More ever in 9th century when two centralised kingdoms forms it's a kingdom of Kakia known as Hubushkia which gets the label Nairi while Aramu's kingdom is labeled Urartu.
2. According the author Nairi had a large Hurrian population but was not exclusively Hurrian. More he considers that other ethnic groups triggered the emergence of Nairi. He do not says what other ethnic groups.
3. Besides Nairi and Uruatri there was a third group in the south known as Subaru which was related to Alzu (Armenian Aljnik Աղձնիք ). This southern group was related to Mitanni/Hanigalbat.
