Pashtun Baby Names
Pashtun people are primarily known as Afgans and Pathans. They follow Islamic religion, and that is what expressed in their names. Basically, Pashtun names are derived from their language, Pashto. However, due to the two accents of Pashto, a name is pronounced differently by the Pashtuns residing in the northern and southern region. The last name of Pashtun comes from the name of the village or from the name of the tribe. "Khan" is also a very commonly used last name, which is not the native of the language Pashto, although it is derived from Turkic language. Apart from the Pashtuns, some Muslims like Indo-Aryans and Tajiks also carry Pashtun names.
