"hanoukia ou hanoukkia"

I encounter "hanoukia," the french word for menorah, most often spelled w/ two k's, ala "hanoukkia." Even here, there's an A1 quiz question "Nous allumons les bougies de la hanoukkia ________."

Hebrew: מנורת חנוכה menorat ḥanukkah

It is orignally an Hebrew word, so even in english, there are several versions of spelling meaning the same thing. The Hanukkah menorah, also chanukiah or hanukkiah. (according to wikipedia)
