Khan, which is more popular as a last name, is a Turkish boy's name meaning "prince," “king,” “ruler,” and “sovereign,” so get ready to give your child the royal treatment. Khan shares roots with khaqan and was originally a historic title given to military chiefs and rulers. It's perfect if you see baby being a natural-born leader.
