I would never use this as a name, and wish that people would research it more before they did.

A Cohen/Kohen is a Jewish priest who is a direct decendant of Aaron from the bible. And many people (myself included) fell that it is disrespectful to use it as a personal name. Its kind of like naming your child "Pope" or "Buddha"

This is the only name I am for creative spelling on, as I feel that Koen, etc are not offensive to my religion.

I think the name is super cute, but I wouldn't personally use it.

I completely did not know that.
I like the look/sound of Cohen, but not Coen or Koen.
