Nir Cohen: 
Instead of $KN meaning “to dwell”, it may mean “to  rule”.  In Amarna 
Letters EA 256: 9  and 362: 69, the Akkadian word for “magistrate” is 
alternatively rendered by the  west Semitic word su-ki-ni or su-ki-na, where the 
consonants are %KN.  Thus an archaic meaning of $KN might be  “to rule” or “to 
be the magistrate over”, instead of the later meaning of “to  dwell”.  If 
the -WN ending is an  archaic-style ending, that might make this archaic 
meaning more likely.
