[Opinions] Hungarian names
As you may now, Hungarian names can be very different from the ones used in the rest of Europe, or English-speaking countries (our language is very different as well, so no surprise). Well now here is the challenge: list 5 boys' and 5 girls' names you like from the Hungarian section of BtN! Try not to think of these names as possibilities for a future child, let sheer aesthetics work!I will post my favourites as well.
Budgerigars, ceiling fans, the Times of India are all part of the luggage I brought into the world... Blue Jesus leaked into me; and Mary's desperation, and Joseph's revolutionary wildness, and the flightiness of Alice Pereira... all these made me, too.

I live in the US, was born in the US, but both my parents are from Hungary. I have a very Hungarian name, my dad's name is Balazs. Three years ago, I had a son and named him Benedek. We are pregnant again (due in September) and are seriously considering a sibling name that is Hungarian as well. My Magyar favorite names are: Girls:
Julianna (My aunt's name)
Katalin
Margit (My mother's name)
Amalia
Emese
ZitaBoys:
Benedek ("Ben")
Sandor (my grandfather's name)
Kalman
Kristof
Karchi (nickname not on the board but used by Hungarian friends, it's a nm for Charles)
