12. Three "Canas":
One south of Tyre, one in Galilee (Kfar Kana), and the other north of there a ways (Khirbet Kana).

Those Kanas have kaph. Anybody know if Qana has a qoph or a kaph in Hebrew?

Never mind: Just checked Haaretz ... qoph. Different pronunciation, different words.

So there's Kana, and Qaneh. Best not to confuse them.
