Ka was the first king to put his name in a serekh as a signal of kingship (or the second, if you believe the theory that Ka ruled before Iry-Hor). A flint knife and pieces of ceramic were found in the tomb that showed the kings name, although the serekh was not surmounted by a falcon. Considering that the name of the king, Ka, is the same symbol for the soul, I wonder how they determined that this was an actual name and not just a ritual or symbolic sign.
His tomb was excavated in 1902, where burial goods were found with the pharaoh's name on them. The name Ka, though, sounds like a very generic name for a pharaoh, if you ask me.
