Thread: Middle name for Cohen?
July 16th, 2013 02:15 AM #21
I'm a non-Jewish person and I don't really understand why Cohen is offensive. As boyandgirl said, I wouldn't be offended if someone names their child Bishop, Deacon, Jesus or any other biblical name. Also, depends where you live. I guess this is a bigger issue in America than anywhere else because their Jewish population is larger. In Australia, I bet 99% of the population would have no idea some people consider this name offensive. Anyway, I think if you love the name then go for it, but be aware that you may meet some raised eyebrows when you introduce your child in the future.Alice - Beatrix - Clara - Daphne - Flora - Harriet - Mabel - Susannah
