"Solomon Lane" rolls off the tongue oddly/limply, IMO. "L" is easily one of the weaker possible initial letters they could've gone with and still had a reasonable surname. Let's do a quick run through the alphabet, leaving out the weaker ones and the ones that don't sound like British surnames:
Bain(e) Crane (a bit close for comfort) Dane Gaine (variation of Gaines) Payne Raine (variant of Raines) Taine Wayne Zane
I'm partial to "Solomon Bain". I think I might've just invented name for yet another SK ripoff character: "Zebulon Payne".
Of course, maybe Solomon Kane's middle name is "Lane"? Remember the old thread which discussed SK leaving "SLK" as his mark/initials in one story?

What does the nod mean at all? Solomon Kane wanted to destroy the world deep down?
I think it’s obvious that Kane’s chivalry is just a self delusion to hide and justify his bloodlust, but how does this character embody that really? Because civilizations need to fall and rise again stronger than. Store?
The connection is obviously there with the name, the naming just seems like an empty reference, which just feels pointless.
