I don't really like it, I don't think it's proper as a first name. It's a Jewish last name and if you're not of that origin it might be seen as disrespectful. It just sounds really awkward as a first name.

Ditto. It's a surname meaning "priest," and it isn't a first name at all.

It's okay. Not really my style. I don't know if I like it in the sibset either, I think Cohen and Brogan sound too similar?? IMO

Lurker popping in.....

Obviously, I like it since it is my son's name. We went with the other spelling for it since "Cohen" is a type of priest in the Jewish religion, and we didn't want to offend anyone. My DH's family is German, and we wanted a name that would go well with a German last name. Koen is short for "Koenraad" which is a Dutch name (Conrad in German) meaning "wise advisor" (although, depending on the source, you will also see it as "honest advisor"). It is also a type of park/garden in Japanese.

I actually quite like it. I heard it in a movie as a last name. But I really also like it as a first name.

Thanks for your comments! I think we decided not to use it but I do really like it. We really want an Irish name and since this is so obviously not an Irish name I think it's out.
