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

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
