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).

1. Verb. To pull a Cohen is to use inaccurate and inappropriate language or phrases to describe a simple (and generally understood) process, while speaking to the audience in a demeaning manner.
2. Adjective. Someone referred to as a Cohen typically talks from an experienced standpoint on something they have little or no knowledge of, often confusing or misrepresenting ideas or concepts. A Cohen is loud and has no problem speaking for a group of people, and often loses face with most listeners.
Don't be such a cohen!
