    I never knew Cohen could come across as offensive to some on religious grounds. I don't think I have ever met a Jewish person in my life, I live in a small village will about five hundred people and the majority of them are either Christian, Catholic or non-religious. I do however know a boy called Cohen who lives in the next village to mine and he doesn't seem to have any trouble with his name.

    Oh, come on ! i never found Cohen offensive . I actually know a Cohen who love his name and i dont think anyone find his name offensive .If you love it .use it ,your son will be propably love his name as well .Iam Christian and when i came accross a man named Jesus i dont find it offencive at all.There are kids named Messiah (which is more offencive in my opinion ) so the name Cohen isnt the worst .

    Since people are getting so offended by this, can I perhaps recommend a change in spelling to Coen.
    The name is beautiful and I understand why you wou;d want to use it.

    Just be prepared for people to assume your child is Jewish in various contexts.

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