Tuval-Cain == Vulcan ?

Tuval-Cain, in the seventh generation after Adam according to the book of Genesis: וְצִלָּה גַם-הִוא, יָלְדָה אֶת-תּוּבַל קַיִן–לֹטֵשׁ, כָּל-חֹרֵשׁ נְחֹשֶׁת וּבַרְזֶל "And Tzilla also gave birth to TUVAL-CAIN, forger of every sharp implement in brass and iron…" (4:22). His name and profession are much too similar to those of the forge-master of Romano-Greek mythology, Vulcan, to be coincidence. However, I’ve been unable to find any research on this.
