Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 [כָּנָה] verb Pi`el betitle, title, give an epithet or cognomen (Late Hebrew id.; Aramaic כְּנָא, ; Arabic ) —

Pi`el Imperfect 1 singular suffix בִשְׁמֶ֑ךָ אֲכַנְּךָוָאֶקְרָא לְךָ Isaiah 45:4 I have called thee by thy name, giving thee a title (of honour; compare for construction Dr§ 163); 3 masculine singular וּבְשֵׁם יִשְׂרָאֵל יְכַנֶּה Isaiah 44:5, and with the name Israel he titles (himself), is hardly possibly; absolute he betitles, or makes use of a title, is unlikely; read probably

Pu`al, see below, in bad sense = give a flattering title: וְאֶלאָֿדָם לֹא אֲכַנֶּה Job 32:21 and unto man I do not give flattering titles ("" אַללֿנָא אֶשָּׂא פְנֵי אִישׁ); absolute Job 32:22.

Pu`al Imperfect יְכֻנֶּה Isaiah 44:5 he is betitled (see above; so ᵑ7 Bi Che Du; "" יקרא בשׁם יעקב, etc.)

Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כָּנָה unused in Kal. Arab. كنى I., II., IV., to call some person or thing by a figurative name or cognomen, especially by an honourable appellation, to adorn with a title (see Tauritz. ad Hamas. Schult. p. 320; Tebleb. ad Har. Schult. ii. 57). Ch. to address honourably. So, in the Hebrew, in

Piel כִּנָּה

(1) to address kindly, to call (any one) kindly. Isaiah 44:5, וּבְשֵׁם יִשְׂרָאֵל יְכַנֶּה “and he kindly speaks to Israel” [addresses by that name]; Isaiah 45:4, אֲכַנְּךָ וְלֹא יְדַעְתָּנִי “I have (gently) called thee, though thou hast not known me.”

(2) to flatter. Job 32:21, 22 Job 32:22.

Hence subst. כְּנָת.
