Koehn (Könn, Koen, Kuehn, Kien, Kane) is an old Prussian Mennonite name first recorded in 1681, which was found in the church records of Danzig, Tragheimerweide, Deutsch-Kazun (Poland), and other places of the Vistula Delta. The Alexanderwohl church record before the migration to Russia also lists the name as one of the early members of the congregation. From Prussia and Poland the name spread to Russia. By the 1950s it was most frequently found in Kansas and Oklahoma among the Mennonites that came from Karolswalde, Poland, many of whom joined the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite. In the 1950s the group had 11 preachers with the name Koehn.
