What does Shere Khan mean?

Shere Khan translates roughly as 'Tiger King' ('shir' is 'tiger' – or 'lion' – in Persian, Punjabi and Hindi, while 'khan' is 'king' in many languages). 'Bhalu' (Baloo) means 'bear' in Hindi, and the 'bagh' in 'Bagheera' means 'tiger' – which is slightly confusing since Bagheera's a panther.
