Sat, 22 Jul 2006, Jane Zeman Smith asked about the surname "Kohen". It has
been disguised or translated to vernacular in host countries, viz.
Kahn/Schiff in Germany, Kaplan in Poland Sacerdote in Italy, Aronow, B'Aron
or many others.

Otherwise, kohanim have adopted secular names without regard to parallel
meanings. My Reznik, Rotsztejn, Beron and Rappaport antecedents all were
Kohanim.
