Table of n, a(n) for n=3..73.

EXAMPLE

(2*6-1)!! = 11!! = 11 * 9 * 7 * 5 * 3 * 1 = 10395. Floor(10395/1) - 2 = 10395 - 2 = 10393 =  19 * 547 is not prime, and floor(10395/2) - 2 = 5197 - 2 = 5195 = 5 * 1039 is not prime, but floor(10395/3) - 2 = 3465 - 2 = 3463 is prime, so a(6) = 3.

MAPLE

a:= proc(n) local m;

      for m while not isprime(iquo(doublefactorial(2*n-1), m)-2)

      do od; m
