A portmanteau of sorts blending the Italian word for family, "famiglia" (although pronounced slightly different than it looks) and nigga, a word commonly used among black people as a means of amiable identification. When blended together, you get FANIGLIA, your homies, your niggas who love like family.
Alyssa: Yo, who dat was you was just talking to?
JR: Oh, that's Raheem, that's my faniglia right there. He's good peoples.
