good one but are Ghoris Pathans or Sayyids ?
Ghurids were Tajiks. The Ghoria Khel tribe of Pashtuns is not be confused with Ghorids of Ghor, who were Shansabani Tajiks or Persians.

Abu Fazal of Ain-e-akbari has mistakenly written Ghoria Khels of Peshawar to be simply "Ghauris".........these Ghauria Khel Pashtuns, when migrated to India, were called "Ghauri pathans" there.............instead of "Ghauria khel" pathans"

Never heard of Mughal-Pathan term.

The Khan title, was bestowed to their nobles by Mughals. All the ethnic Mughals had Khan titles. Non-Mughal nobles also had Khan titles

You might live in Punjab, don't you? Well in Balochistan, Pathans call themselves Mughals and use Khan instead of Surnames Mirza & Baig.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khan_(title)

Yeah, its basically a mongol derived term, and the Mughals claimed descent from them. The very word Mughal, is a corruption of the word Mongol. The Khan was a ruler in the Mongol classification, sort of like the term Raja in India I think. Its become a name because adopting one's title as a name is seen in many cultures. Kinda like how people are called Carpenter or Blacksmith (possibly even the name Black). Raja is also like that come to think of it
