Is vs. Deacon vs. Offensive?

Hey! We had finally agreed on Deacon for our son’s name but we have been told that it would be very offensive to use it. What do you think? Would it be offensive or would it be fine to use it? Thanks! Madilyn and Mason

That’s news to me. Why do they say it would be offensive?

I can’t see why it would be offensive.

They said it would be offensive due to the religious connection to it. They also used the example of how Cohen could be considered offensive to some

Cohen and Deacon are two completely different concepts.

being a Christian I have no reason to feel offended. Cohen was a name that I had as a guilty pleasure name, because of the Jewish connection I chose not to use it. But if you love it, go ahead use it.

I don’t find it offensive, I love it (though I’m biased, it’s my son’s name)
