Hungarian names

Hungarians not only celebrate birthdays but namedays as well. Each given name is assigned to one or more days of the calendar, based on religious traditions, historical events, the birthday of a famous person who had the same first name, or on other facts. Namedays are celebrated in work places, among friends and – of course – in the family. People usually give flowers, dessert or small gifts as a present to celebrate someone's nameday.
In Hungary all names are given with the family name first, followed by the given name(s). So, the terms "first name" and "last name" are potentially confusing and should be avoided as they do not, in this case, denote given and family names respectively.
The name of a  married woman can be confusing to those unfamiliar with this custom. The bride has a chance to choose from 5 possibilities.
  1. She may keep her maiden name after her marriage, e.g. Szabó Eszter.
  2. She may adopt her husband’s family name followed by her maiden name, e.g. Kovács-Szabó Eszter.
  3. She may use her husband’s family name followed by her own given name, e.g. Kovács Eszter.
  4. She may use her husband’s name with a -né suffix (Mrs.) at the end followed by her maiden name, e.g. Kovácsné Szabó Eszter or Kovács Jánosné Szabó Eszter.
  5. By the old Hungarian custom, the bride adopted the entire name of her groom with a -né suffix at the end. Her given name was thus disguised by her official, married name e.g. Kovács Jánosné.
