I’m not religious nor Jewish but if you research online you will find it’s considered incredibly offensive. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.reddit.com/r/namenerds/comments/4l13au/is_the_name_cohen_offensive_for_nonjews_to_use/There is just one one which explains and personally I wouldn’t want to saddlemy kid with a name that others could find incredibly offensive
Re: Add to my list?
Out of those options, Cole. I prefer Robert Cole, actually, but I don't know if that would be an option for you.
Cohen and Cole are both fine and I think both pair well with Robert. Suggesting:
Cole is ok
Cohen is awful
I don’t like Cohen personally. It’s a surname exclusively as far as I’m concern. I do like Cole Robert or Robert Cole.

@mb0112 June, Ruby, Violet (a family name I absolutely LOVE) and Sarah are all high up there on MY list. DH thinks they all sound 'old'
There is just one one which explains and personally I wouldn’t want to saddle

But even that doesn't capture the weirdness of Cohen being a last name that's really a title AND a name that many, even if they have little contact with the Jewish community, would associate with Judaism.
Cora Elizabeth is a great name! I don't think you can use Meredith with Elizabeth as a middle name. Too much "th."
Cole Robert is also nice!
