I know that keren is either a horn or a ray (of light), and that 
karnaim is dual, like yadayim, raglayim, s'fatayim, garbayim, so 
that's why I thought karnayim refers to horns, since there are two of 
them on an animal, and kranot to rays of light.


No, Shoshanna,

"Keren" can mean either a horn or a "ray". Karnaim is dual, Kranot is
plural. The four horns of an altar are called "kranot hamizbeax".
