OK .. so how would you pronounce the name COYNE ?? My husband and I have always pronounced it 'Cohen' but I know some people who also pronounce it 'Coin'. It's not a huge deal .. we love the name and want to name our baby boy Coyne .. but we want to be sure it's pronounced 'Cohen' !!
Any help would be greatly appreciated !!!!!!

Why don't you 'coin' a name for him?

I've heard it pronounced both Coyne like 'coin' and Kine like 'kind' as well.

Ach ní ainm baiste é, an ea?

I have never heard Coyne used as a given name in Ireland.

Tháinig Nóra Barnacle ón gCladach i nGaillimh.

"I have never heard Coyne used as a given name in Ireland".
-aonghus

how do you mean that sentance? Coyne theres lot of them around as surnames and pronounced as 'coin', but I'd imagine y'd know that, so i suspected you emant somthing different.

"given name" = "first name" = (in the west esp. Ireland) Christian name

The first post here was about calling somebody's son Coyne, pronounced Cohen (Hebrew for priest, by the way).
