    Is the name Cohen pronounced Co-en, two syllables?

    Or is it pronounced Cone like the way Hourd says it?

    TIA.

    :munch:

    What do you think, by the way?

    I've always heard the Coen brothers pronounced as Co-en, but my husband's name is Cone and it's pronounced like ice cream cone

    GHP, is your husband Jewish?

    I thought Cone was a non-Jewish name.

    Do you have to make that phlegmy throat clearing sound when you pronounce it?
