Topics Definition of Hebrew Names
By Jeff A. Benner
The name Cainan in Hebrew is קינן (qeynan, Strong's #7018). This is not the same name Canaan, the son of Hham, which is כנען (kena’an, Strong's #3667). The name Qeynan comes from the verbal root קנן (qanan, Strong's #7077), literally meaning "to make a nest." This verbal root is derived from the parent root קן (qeyn, Strong's #7064) meaning a "nest."
