I am not sure what the question is.
Basically the root QNY in BH is common in the sense of "purchase" and
rare in the sense of "create"(Gen 14:22) which is also found in Phoenecian.
In spite of modern Europeanized pronunciations (see
http://www.houseofdavid.ca/anc_heb_5.htm#prob2 ) Q was not confused with
K in Biblical Hebrew (see
http://www.adath-shalom.ca/history_of_hebrew2.pdf ) and any historic
link between QNY and KNS is most unlikely - they do not have even one
phoneme in common.
