    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.
    First baby due on September 7, 2015!
