Cohen is vs. Offensive?

I have a two month old baby boy named Cohen and I just heard that some people are offended by the name? I don’t understand why? One of my friends said that her mom was super offended when she heard I named my baby Cohen because she is Jewish. Can anyone explain to me why Cohen would be offensive to someone? I still love the name, but it’s weird to me that people think this. -Celeste

Terra in Oklahoma
It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
