Last name origins & meanings:
- Japanese (rare in Japan): the most usual rendering is ‘gold’;
bearers are most likely descended from immigrants named Kim,
from the ancient Korean Shilla kingdom.
- Jewish (eastern
Ashkenazic): one of the many forms of Cohen.
(Koń): from koń ‘horse’, hence a metonymic
occupational name for someone who bred or cared for horses or a
nickname for someone thought to resemble a horse.
