similarities to East Iranian)
Kur can have different meaning in Turkic, it can mean hill, mountain, fortress and it can mean protection. -gan is just a suffix (with a soft -ĝ-). I don't think it can be applied to Iranism.It might be a hybridization of Iranic and Turkic ( as we know many Words in Turkic are hybridizations of Iranic and Altaic words). Maybe Kur is Iranic for hil/mountain while Gan Altaic for Grave?
Or gan/an might come from typical ending for Iranic terms.
