“Stan by your man”?

No, nor is it the suffix, "-stan"
From Worldatlas.com:

Numerous countries in Central Asia have a name that ends in "stan," including:

 * *Afghanistan
 * Kazakhstan
 * Kyrgyzstan
 * Pakistan
 * Tajikistan
 * Turkmenistan
 * Uzbekistan
* As a generally accepted explanation, the suffix /"stan"/ is an ancient Persian and/or Farsi word meaning /country, nation, land, or place of,/ so, the country name of Afghanistan would then mean /"homeland"/ of the Afghans, or /place of/ the Afghans.
