Actually the word can in hebrew alone can mean either meat or bread. It is just a reference to food.
From strongs hebrew dictionary:
From H3898; food (for man or beast), especially bread, or grain (for making it): - ([shew-]) bread, X eat, food, fruit, loaf, meat, victuals. See also H1036.
I suppose you can say there is an interesting connection there. Obviously God knew the meaning of the name before he was incarnate there.
