Coen vs. Cohen vs. WE NEED HELP!
OUR BABY BOY CAME EARLY! We posted last night, but no other name stood out as much as Cohen/Coen. Do you think a different spelling would help with some of the controversy? My wife is having surgery today, she broke her arm in the fall that resulted in our sons birth, so Dad is looking into the names I keep myself distracted. Our son is in the NICU, but should be getting stronger and coming home soon. Please, any other advice would be great. God bless
The Top Baby Name is...
I think if you spell it without the "h", it will be spelled incorrectly his entire life...so save him the grief. Cute name and congrats!
Cohn, like the guy who wrote Walking In Memphis :)
Cohen is perfect! Do you want middle names? GL!
Spelling it differently isn’t going to make it any less offensive to some Jewish people.
I was raised Catholic, my wife Methodist. We don’t want to offend any Jewish People....Any ideas?
Also, Middle names would be great!
Secret society Jews are going to be offended because they won’t be able to recognize each other by name? Really? I think the concept is offensive.
I think Cohen (Co-En) spelling is best
I don’t know what the reference to Jewish community is...
I have known someone with the last name Cohen and it was his nickname too... like the show The O.C.
I will say on a different site someone explained it like this. A Cohen is a Jewish priest and a religious name, so… it would pretty much be like a non-Christian person naming their child Jesus, a non-Muslim person naming their child Mohammed, or a non-Catholic person wearing a rosary as jewelry simply because it looks cool,” one poster wrote. “If you’re not Jewish, please be aware that many Jewish people may be understandably offended by a non-Jewish Cohen." So you have to decide base on this whether you want to use it. In spite of feelings like this, it is a name that is rising in popularity in the States.
I like Cohen. So sorry about what happened, prayers for fast delivery! What about Cohen Isaac, Cohen Andrew, Cohen Luke, Cohen Isaiah, Cohen David, Cohen John, Cohen Jeremiah or Cohen Elijah.
Coen is actually really cute! I think it looks adorable. Good luck with the surgery. Hope everyone is okay.
It will go well with a lot of middle names :)
Okay... Hmmm.... Maybe we need to go back to the drawing board.
Baby boy is already here. My wife slipped and fell on ice yesterday, that lead to his delivery. She has a broken arm, and will need surgery to correct it. It has been a very stressful 24 hours, and now we need a new name! Any names similar to Cohen?
I love Cohan.
My aunt just married a Cohen Collins. It’s a great name. Don’t let religion determine your style. The American boy name Christian is wet popular. No offense there!
Koen is a Dutch name meaning Brave, and it has nothing to do with anything Jewish.
Koen is another option. Indeed a different name, but in Dutch it has a different pronounciation. In the States it’d probably just be pronounced like Cohen and mistaken for it.
