Common Hungarian First Names And Last Names

Below you will find a list of some common Hungarian first and last names. Obviously with there being thousands of Hungarian names, I have only listed those I have come across (i.e. friends' names, names of shopkeepers and public figures); which are names you will more than likely come across too.

I have created this list purely so you know how to pronounce the names. I remember when I first met my hairdresser, Éva and asked "How do you pronounce your name? E-Va" and she replied "Yes"; being polite and probably through misinterpretation of my English. I later found out it should be pronounced AY-VOH. Mispronunciation can be embarrassing!

As this is an extra section whereby you should already know how to split Hungarian words and know how to pronounce Hungarian syllables, I have purposely not added audio to the names. In the future I might add audio, but in reality (at this time) I do not think I will; for the above mentioned reasons.
