The aircraft's name-father is Mr Devlet (in eng. Mr.State, lol). They were probably going to give it an Arabic name, so thanks to Devlet Bahçeli.

Good, it would be a problem if it was Kağan. In fact, when children are named, they are called Kaan, not Kağan, Khan or Han.

The pronunciation will be a bit strange for foreigners but it's fine for us.
Not the case at all. I named my nephew Kaan and here in the states they pronounce it just like in Turkish.

Wrong the title Kagan was mentioned by Chinese sources even during the Xiongnu/Hun period, it had the same meaning "Emperor", Sogdian btw. is a Indo-Iranian language.

Launch Kaan's.
Kaan's engaging.
Kaan's in the air.
Kaan's on patrol.

It has a nice ring to it.

Can't believe noone mentioned it yet. It will also roll of the tongue pretty easily for Anglo audience.

It's difficult to pronounce and against our spelling rules. That's why I didn't like it.

Someone says the name is Turkish, but in the spelling rules of Turkish, two vowels are not written one after the other. There will always be a consonant between them.

Kağan must be.

Entirely the first thing that popped into my head, in a good way.

This is great name selection in the end, as there is lot of soft power in this name just by this scene alone and "Wrath of Khan"!

With Istikbal or something like that, I was thinking essentially another nickname will arise over time instead (from say pilots themselves) very much like "Viper" did from "Fighting Falcon" (which is not so catchy).

khan song by ak shaman.
Mighty KAAN had three sons, Bozdogan han, Gokdogan han and Gokhan. Anka Beg and Bayraktar Beg were two loyal comrade-in-arms. His fame was spreading rapidly to every corner of Asia. Then begins a storytelling and music in the style of Alper Çağlar.

And the name being uttered by the “Khan” of ham acting himself, Mr. Shatner makes it more iconic imo :LOL:

For sure bro.

As a trekkie myself, I always cracked up especially when I heard the line in Weird Al's "white and nerdy" song:

"the only question I ever thought was hard....was do I like Kirk.... or do I like Picard?" 🤣

For me I pick Picard as the GOAT because I grew up on TNG (along with DS9 and Voyager) so it has special place.

But major respect to the original series for sure (and the even numbered movies).

Kirk was a very different character and temperament, one of a kind. Shatner did excellent job.

He is considered a national treasure here in Canada heh.

Ah you Canucks, always have to remind Americans that Kirk is actually one of you, heh? :LOL:

BTW funny you brought this up

TurAF personnel call Phantom affectionately as “Baba” literally meaning “Pops”.
It has dual meaning in Turkish, though.
first one of course as one’s own father and an elder man.
The second one is head of a crime family as in Italian Mafia Don or Godfather and it evokes both fear and respect.
Let’s see if Turkish pilots will come up with something cool for Kaan as well.

TAI put 4 letters in a bag and draw those letters one by one to make up a new name.

First came out ANKA and now comes out KAAN. They oversimplify.
