The head caste in Ancient and future Israel, the koheinim (priests) are Levi'im (Levites) who are descended from Aharon ben-Amram-v'Yokheved HaLevi.
"Cohen" is a variant of "Kohein". In turn, "Cohen" has variants such as "Katz" ("Kohan Tzedek", as in Phoebe Katz (Cates) Klein), "Kagan" or "Kajan" (variants of "Kahan" or "Kahane"; as in Associate SCOTUS Justice Elena Kagan), "Kohn" and "Kahn" (as in John Kohn (changed to Kerry by his granddad, Fritz Kohn)), and "Cohan" (a variant of "Kohein" not to be confused with the variant for the Irish "Keohane", though that may have some, if any, origins among koheinim based in Ireland).

The female version of a Cohen is far from geeky. Intelligence and street smarts are parts of her world but fail to make up the total essence of who she is.A Cohen is beautiful, sexy( due to an exceptionally well-curved bod), and irresistible to the opposite sex. She's a girl who's confident and independent. No man is necessary to make her whole, and that's why they can't resist her charm. A Cohen is quirky, witty, and sweet. Her interests are varied, and this girl can do anything! Just because she's decided she will.
Boy 1(replying to particularly smart remark): "I swear, Cohen, you're more obnoxious than me... good thing your pretty, huh?"

Boy 2: " There's just something about you...you're charming, Cohen"

Man 1: " Cohen,you're gorgeous... and such a smartass"

Why does he play that here?
