.....
My husband says some friend of his mentioned quoting some sources that the name 'Khan' is the Asian version of the Jewish name 'Cohen.'  I never heard of this.  Have you?   Any truth in this? 

If 'Khan' in South Asia means leader or king, then it cannot be the regional version of Jewish name 'Cohen.'  The word cohen in hebrew means a Jewish priest, from what I know.   The 2 definitions seem very different.
