    Lucky he's American then, that would have been tough in high school!

    It's probably just a Cooper knockoff?

    My friend called her daughter Sopie (no jokes) when I asked why the spelling she said because her partner can't pronounce "the f in Sophie/Sofie" correctly and this is the way he pronounces it... I don't know about some but I may have just chose a different name that could be pronounced.

    I assume it's "Cooper" but I just keep getting "Cougher" (as in someone who coughs a lot) in my head
