See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU (for the first 3 letters).  
also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GnuCash
And: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Project

The cash part should be fairly obvious.  

:-D

GNU = Gnus Not Unix

There are several Open Source Projects that use this acronym as part of their
names, including GnuCash and GnuPlot, and there is the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC
LICENSE, which is one of the most commonly used (and probably oldest) software
licenses used for Open Source software.

See:

I don't know the specific answer to the second part of your question
but here's some help from Flanders and Swann with regard to the
pronunciation of the first part of the name.
