This article is about the "Pashtuns by Ethnicity". For others, see List of Afghans.

The following is an incomplete list of notable Pashtuns.[1] The list includes those born to parents who are both Pashtuns and those that have mixed Pashtun ancestry. Pashtun people are usually defined by speaking the East Iranian dialects of Pashto and related dialects (i.e. Waneci, Wazirwola, etc.) as their mother tongue, and/or Practice Pashtunwali (culture)however there exist many Pashtun communities that assimilated and/or shifted to speaking another language but trace their ancestral roots to pashtun tribes, in several cases, patrilineal lineage is counted for Pashtun ancestry according to Pashtun culture regardless of the mother's line or mixed descent. Pashtuns most likely originated as a tribal confederation of people or peoples of proto-indo-european origin somewhere in Central Asia from which other Indo-Aryan and Iranian peoples may also originate from.
