Coen for a boy?

I am STRUGGLING to come up with THE name for my baby, due in [name]May[/name]. What do you think of [name]Coen[/name]? [name]Louis[/name]? [name]Caius[/name], [name]Coltrane[/name]? [name]Atlas[/name]? I want something a little different. Suggestions VERY welcome! Thanks


I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Louis[/name]! And I love [name]Coen[/name]'s sound. But I would warn you, even though I know [name]Coen[/name] has a different background than [name]Cohen[/name], they sound exactly the same and some find the use of the name [name]Cohen[/name] offensive, so you might run into some trouble there…

Some other suggestions…


You would probably be safe using [name]Coen[/name], it is not offensive like [name]Cohen[/name]. The spelling makes all the difference.

I also like [name]Atlas[/name]!

[name]How[/name] about [name]Colton[/name], [name]Cole[/name], [name]Ciar[/name]?

[name]How[/name] come some people find [name]Cohen[/name] offensive? I wasn’t aware of that.
Thanks for your recommendations, I love [name]Elias[/name], [name]Alden[/name], [name]Archer[/name] and [name]Soren[/name].

Because it’s a very holy, sacred name to Jewish families that’s often appropriated by non-Jewish families who aren’t aware of its history or context.

You can Google, “cohen, offensive” for more specific information/opinions.
