Khan Origin and Meaning

The name Khan is a boy's name meaning "king, ruler".
This surname and title spread widely across Asia thanks to the conquests of Genghis Khan in the thirteenth century. You may also recognise it from the emperor Kublai Khan, who hosted Marco Polo; The Jungle Book's Shere Khan; and the Star Trek character Khan Noonien Singh. With other royal names and titles rising, this international variant has also seen a little more use, though it is still pretty rare.
