Inspiration for the word "Khal"?

In the real world, the Dothraki title "Khal" may have been inspired by some words or names in Middle-Eastern languages: compare:

(1) The common Arabic man's name Khalid or Khaled

(2) See https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Khalistan


I always figured it was a tweek of Khan.
