TOP 200 Hungarian Names For Boys And Girls: Origin, Meaning, Variations And Pronunciation

Hungarian names

With around 10 million people, Hungary is a country in Central Europe with a complicated history of occupation and war. Despite its history, Hungary began to develop well after transitioning from communism to capitalism. 

The Hungarian language, distantly related to the Finnish and Estonian languages, is one of just a few European languages that derives from the Uralic language family instead of the Indo-European family.

Hungarian names have pagan roots. At first, these names were associated with natural phenomena, wishes for the child, or even the characteristics of the child. For instance, Frank means “free” in translation, and Diezot means “winner”.

Later on, some Turkish names became popular in the country, with some names such as ‘Geza’ and ‘Atilla’ not having their meanings or forms changed after coming into Hungarian nomenclature. 

Due to the rise of Christianity, children started to be given middle names after baptism. Names were taken from Christian namebooks and transformed into Hungarian, with a name like ‘Gabriel’ becoming ‘Gabor’.

Many Hungarian names have Christian equivalents. For example,  ‘Gergely’ is ‘Gregory’, ‘István’ is Stepan, etc. However, there are also many Hungarian names that have nothing to do with Christianity. For example, the masculine ‘Géza’, and ‘Béla’, or the female ‘Aranka’ or ‘Ildikó’ are not Christian. The presence of a lot of Christian names at any time has to do with the political climate. 

Thus, both native and non-native Hungarian names are popular in the country. These names are usually related to professions, spiritual qualities, or character traits. 

Every child in Hungary has several personal names, with the first being the main name recorded in all official documents, the second being given to the child at baptism, and the third being given during the sacrament of chrismation. The last two names are not used in day-to-day life. Their name, despite whether it is an official document or a spoken word, is always followed by a surname and, in all names, the stress is on the first syllable.

The government approved a complete alphabetical list of Hungarian names which includes the naming conventions for children. This is so Hungarians can honor their traditions, genetics, and culture by not allowing borrowed names to become more popular than national names. Children are only allowed to be called other names if they are from a different nation or religion. 

In this article, we have created a list of 200 Hungarian names for boys and girls to help you pick the perfect name for your little boy or girl. These names should help highlight your child’s uniqueness.
