      "Khan" is a Title...............

      Not a Caste...............

      Most well known being Ghenjiz Khan or Chengez Khan as he is known in Asia
      His real name was "Temόjin"

      Now it seems it is one of the most common names for Pakistanis in the US Phone Books...............

      So you must be from a place where Castes prevail?............

      i agree with the other poster....Khan is not a caste it's just a surname.

      Im a khan but unfortunately I dont know much about our history except for the fact that my father's forefathers have some link with Moghuls, afghanistan, and iran.

      Thanks for that, so if Khan is your surname what is your caste , can't be Khan can it ?

      I know Kashmiris originated from iran so maybe a link there?
      Thanks , something to go on

      My last name is khan but our caste is pathan. I dont think Khans are a type of caste.

      I think you'll get better answers in the society forum.
      it's the heart afraid of dying, that never learns to dance; It's the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chance; It's the one who won't be taken, who cannot seem to give; And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live.

      Im no expert on this subject, but Khan itself isnt a caste. But alot of castes use khan as a surname among pathans/pakhtuns. My surname is Khan. My caste, if you get into specifics, is Umerzai Khankhel. Various other people with surname of Khan might be from different castes/tribes. Imran Khan is Niazi I think... Shahid Afridi is infact Shahid Khan Afridi. In general, Khans are considered to be what you call a Pathan, which are people from the NWFP mainly.

      Like, if you hear someones last name to be Khan, you would most likely assume hes a pathan and from NWFP. Its a very widely used surname and has been used among non pathans as a title of respect as well in the past during the times of moghuls and central asia etc. And you will find alot of khans that dont have a pakhtun background these days. So you cant pinpoint it as one particular caste.Hope that helps.

      I dont think Khan is a caste, but maybe a group of tribes/sub castes all bundled into one generic word.
