Coen can be a masculine given name, a surname or a place name.


Coen is also an aboriginal Australian name meaning thunder.


As a surname it may be a derivative of the two Irish surnames O'Cadhain (of Connacht) and O'Comhdhain (of Ulster), it could be a Spanish or Italian variant of the Hebrew name Cohen meaning "priest", or it may be a Dutch patronym (see "Given name" below). People with this surname include:
