Connection to Kwll

'Quelch'. 'Kwll'. Could there be a connection between these two beyond the first/only syllable of their names? Well, in The War Amongst the Angels, Quelch is described[1] as "holding the Fellini Chalice in his six-figured hand". The hand of Kwll that was grafted on to Corum had six fingers. Coincidence? (And if Quelch is Kwell does that make his twin Maurice Rhynn?)
