Last night I came in on the end of a yiddish of the actors
was listed as ALKUNEH.
ALKUNEH is the Ashkenazi pronountiation of the Biblical name ELKANAH. There
were at least 4 of them in the Bible:
1 The Husband of Hannah and father of Samuel.
2 The Head of a Levitical family.
3 An Officer of Ahaz’s household.
4 The doorkeeper of the Ark of the Covenant.
