They are two different names...

COHEN
Gender: Masculine
Usage: ?
Contributed by anonymous on 3/30/2006
Jewish - derived from Hebrew word for kohen ("priest")

KOEN
Gender: Masculin
Usage: Dutch
Pronounced: KOON [key]
Short form of KOENRAAD

Alot of people are using it as the same name and pronunciation though. I don't like Either. It's like naming your child "Priest" "Pastor" "Father" or "Pope".

My son is named Koen. We went with the Dutch spelling, and Koon is his nickname. :biggrin:
