The meaning of khatam is depend on sentences.
For example:
Labisal KHATAM  = enchase the RING 
KHATAMAllahu 'ala quluu bihim = Allah SEAL their (rejecter of the
 truth) heart 
UPKHATAMAlkitab = FINISHing (read) books. 
KHATMUlqur'an   = FINISHing qur'an 
Husnul KHATIMAh = happy in the END (dying as Muslim)   
Su'ul KHATIMAh  = unhappy in the END (dying as Kafir) 
KHATAMAn nabiy  = the LAST Prophet! 

I believe, you dear Ahmadis, do not satisfy about the translation
of "khataman nabiyyin" as I quoted from many tafsirs. To
clear your doubt, let me to explain using Hadith books. I will 
wrote the Arabic ones so that you understand easily. 

From Hadith
~~~~~~~~~~~
1. From kitab Shahih Bukhari-Muslim:
   "qaala Rasulullaah s.a.w. lii khamsatu asmaain, ana 
   MUHAMMADUN, ana AHMAD, ana almaahii,alladzii yamhullaahul
   kufra wa anal haasyirulladzii yuhsh runnaasu 'alaa qadamii
   wa anal 'AAQIBU"

   The meaning is:
   "I am Muhammad, I am Ahmad, I am the effacer and infidelity
   shall be erased through me; I am the assembler. People shall be
   assembled on Doomsday after my time. And I am Al-AQIB. 
   [see Kitab Bukhari, vol II p. 183]

   The meaning of Al-Aqib is translated in the Kitab Muslim:
   "wal 'AAQIBul ladzii laisa ba'dahu nabiyyun", which
   means "I am the last in the sense that no prophet shall
   succeed me."[see Sharah Muslim, vol XV p. 104]
  
2. "'an abii hurairata radliyallaahu 'anhu anna Rasulullahi 
   s.a.w. qaala inna matsalii wamatsalul anbiyaai min qabli 
   kamatsali rajulin banai baitan faahsanahu waajmalahu illaa
   maudli'a labinatin min zaawiyatin faja'alannaasu yathuufuuna
   bihii waya'jabuuna lahu wayaquuluuna: hallaa wusluit haadihil
   labinatu qaala:fa anal labinatu waanaa khooti munnabiyyiina"

   The meaning is:
   "My position in relation to the prophets who came before
   me can be explained by the following example: A man erected 
   a building and adorned this edifice with great beauty, but 
   he left an empty niche, in the corner where just one brick 
   was missing. People looked around the building and marveled
   at its beauty, but wondered why a brick was missing from that
   niche? I am like unto that one missing brick and I am the 
   last in the line of the Prophets. 
   [see Bukhari-FathulBari, vol VII p. 370]
  
3. "qaalan nabiyyu shallallaahu alaihi wasallama:kaana banuu 
   israiila ta suu suhumul anbiyaau kullamaa halaka nabiyyun 
   khalafahu nabiyyyun wa annahu LAA NABIYYUN BA'DII," 
   [see Sahih Bukhari, vol II p. 175]

   which means: 
   "The tribe of Israel was guided by prophets. When a 
   prophet passed away, another prophet succeeded him. But no 
   (new) prophet after me.
  
   NOTE:IN THIS HADITH, RASULULLAH DID NOT SAY 
   "KHATAMAN NABIYYIN BUT "LAA NABIYYUN BA'DII" 
   WHICH MEANS "NO (NEW) PROPHETS AFTER ME". 

4. "qaalan nabiyyu shallallaahu alaihi wasallama:sayakuunu 
   fii ummatii tsa laatsuuna kadzdzabuuna kulluhum yaz'amu 
   annahu nabiyyun wa anaa KHAATAMUN NABIYYIINA LAA NABIYYA 
   BA'DII" 

   The meaning is:
   "In my ummah(muslim), there shall be born 30 grand liars
   and each of whom will claim to be a prophet, but I am the 
   Last Prophet, there is no prophet after me." 
   [see Abu Dawud vol 2, p 228 and sahih Tirmidzi vol 2 p 45]
  
   NOTE: IN THIS HADITH, RASULULLAH USED "LAA NABIYYIINA 
   BA'DII (NO PROPHET AFTER ME)" TO EMPHASIZE "KHAATAMUN
   NABIYYIN (THE LAST OF PROPHETS)"

5. "Laa taquumus saa'atu hatta yanba'itsa dajjaaluuna 
   kadzdzaabuuna qariibun bin tsalaatsiina kulluhum yaz'amu 
   annahum rasuulullaahi"

   The meaning is The day of last hour will not come except there
   shall be born 30 dajjals(liars) and all of them will claim to 
   a prophet."[Sunan Abu Daud ,vol IV p. 98]

6. "wa khalafahu ba'dli magaaziihi faqaala lahu 'aliyyun yaa
   rasuulallaahi tukhallifunii ma'an nisaai washshiiyaani faqaala
   rasuulullaahi s.a.w:amaa tardha antakuuna minnii bimanzilati 
   haaruuna min muusa illa annahu laa nubuwwata BA'DII"
   [see Sahih Tirmidzi vol XIII p 171]

   The meaning is:

   "When Rasulullah s.a.w. left Ali r.a. for a war, Ali 
   asked to him, 'why do you leave me with women and children? 
   Rasulullah s.a.w said: (to explain the reward to protect women
   and children) You (Hazrat Ali) are related to me as Aaron was
   related to Moses (pbuh), but no Apostle will come after 
   me."
 
   This hadith described when Rasulullah s.a.w. went to Tabuk 
   Battle. 

7. "qaala rasuulallaahi s.a.w.:innar risaalata wan nubuwwata
   qadinqatha'at falaa rasuula ba'dii walaa nabiyya fasyaqqa 
   dzalika 'alan naasi faqaa la lakinil mubasysyaraatu qoolu yaa
   rasulallaahi wamal mubasysyiraatu qaala rukyal muslimi wahiya
   juz-un min ajzaain nubwwati"

   The meaning is:

   "Rasulullah said: 'The prophecy of (rasul and nabi) is
   finished then no (new) prophet and no messenger after me,' 
   the companions of Messenger seemed to ask something, then 
   Rasulullah continued to say, ' but there is MUBASHIRAAT."
   The companions of Messenger asked,'what is MUBASHIRAT ya 
   Rasulullah?' He s.a.w answered,'this is a dream of muslim and
   that dream is a bit of propercy character(not propercy itself,
   see hadith no 6 regarding the reward of Ali r.a.). 
   [see Sahih Tirmidzi vol IX p. 126]
