Icelandic has [n_0], [m_0], [N_0] and [J_0].  As a bonus, if also has [r_0]
and [l_0] (or more often [K], I think):

[n_0]: |hnifur|  [(h)n_0I:v_0Yr]  'knife'
[m_0]: |hrafn|   [(h)r_0ap_}m_0]  'raven'
[N_0]: |banka|   [b_0aUN_0ka]     'bank' (nominative case)
[J_0]: |banki|   [b_0aUJ_0cI]     'bank' (dative case)
