Excellent point, brother! Rabbeinu's name is TEN letters when spelled as Pashut Kaful Meshulash Meruba.

Also, Rabbeinu's name begins and ends with a Noon, just as the name of Nachshon Prince of Judah who brought the Korbonos on behalf of his Tribe on the day that in the future would be Rabbeinu's B-day.

Along these lines, Yehudah - the name of the Tribe that Nachshon brought the Korbonos on behalf of -contains the Shem Havaya (YKVK), which is also spelled as TEN letters as Pashut Kaful Meshulash Meruba, the original Shir Chadash as mentioned in Tikkunei Zohar.
