Uh - no, Marianne

Karnei is not the plural of rays - it is the plural of rays "OF" 
something, ie: light

The plural of rays by itself is karnaim.

Rays OF something (ie light) = karnei - something

Rays alone = karnaim


More likely is the meaning ascribed to Moshe's "karnaim" - that his
face shown so much, that rays of light protruded from it.

Keren Or = ray of light

Yes, except that the plural of rays is "karney" and those of horns "karnaim".
