The word manna comes from the question what is it. The first time it is mentioned:

Exodus 16
15And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat.

Zechariah often questioned the Lord what is this?

Zechariah 1
9Then said I, O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will shew thee what these be.
19And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.
21Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.

I remember noticing this too. But I can't see if the link is tighter than that.
