I have a feeling the word was mispelled and it is actually "mañanita" literally meaning a small morning but just another friendly way to talk about the morning.

I remember the poem...
sabes que es linda la mar
la viera de mañanita
cuando a gatas la puntita
del sol se pone a asomar.

Note the use of la mar not el mar quite common in poetry and in older Spanish

Could it be "mamacita" ? I believe that means something like "little mama"

If that is the case, it might be that the words need to be seperated: Mamá Nita.
