    Middle name for Cohen?

    With a last name of Berkheimer, I'm not sure what middle name would fit with Cohen. I need something that flows well, and something strong and beautiful. Any ideas?

    I really wouldn't recommend putting Cohen and Berkheimer together. Cohen is a sacred Jewish title and Berkheimer is almost comically German. I would definitely raise an eyebrow.

    This. Please consider that even if it doesn't bother you, your son may not appreciate having a name that is offensive to many.

    Ooh.. You have a difficult last name. I dont know something like :
    Cohen August Berkheimer
    Cohen Atticus Berkheimer
    Cohen Percival Berkheimer
    Cohen Jackson Berkheimer
    Cohen Elias Berkheimer
    Cohen Alistair Berkheimer
    Cohen Odin Berkheimer
    Cohen Theodore Berkheimer
    Cohen George Berkheimer
    Cohen Edward Berkheimer
    Cohen Nicholas Berkheimer

    I don't know if that helps at all, sorry.
    Good luck!

    Adding on to what southern maple said I have heard using the name Cohen may not be a good idea because it is part of the Jewish community. You may be stepping on some toes with the name. And I remember a while back another berry trying to use the name Cohen and it raised a lot of eyebrows and brought about religious opinions/conflicts. May want to re-consider your name choice.
