  • I like the name, but I'm a little unsure about the spelling. I am with most of the others, I like Cohen.

  • I have seen this spelling as a last name but with an e on the end.

    I too am not a fan.

  • I would go with Cohen. Otherwise people are going to think you just can't spell. Another variant is Cohn, or Kohn.
    It's also a Hebrew word meaning priest.
