=== Suffixes ===

In Hungarian language certain family relationships are expressed by attaching a suffix to a given name.  These suffixes are part of the grammar of the language, not naming conventions.
 +
 +
==== Suffix ''-fi, -fia, -fy,'' or ''fÿ'' ====
 +
To refer to a man as his father's son, the suffix '''''-fi'' or variant is attached to his father's given name.''' For example:
 +
:* Fodor Jákobfi, meaning Theodore, son of Jacob
 +
:* Domokos Bertoldfia, meaning Domokos, son of Bertold
 +
:* Miklós Oszkárfy, meaning Nicholas, son of Oscar
 +
:* Simon Vilmosfÿ, meaning Simon, son of Vilmos
 +
 +
The father's name with suffix attached may be used as a patronym.
    
==== Suffix ''-né'' ====
 
==== Suffix ''-né'' ====
In Hungarian language, to refer to a married woman as a man's wife, the suffix '''''-né'' is attached to the man's given name.'''  For example:
+
To refer to a married woman as her husband's wife, the suffix '''''-né'' is attached to her husband's given name.'''  For example:

Although '''''Nagy Jánosné''''' resembles the American formal '''''Mrs. John Nagy''''', use of ''-né'' belongs to Hungarian language grammar, and is not a traditional Hungarian naming convention.  Records of women named in this manner are rare.  Most prevalent are 19th century and early 20th century '''United States immigration records''' and, in recent decades, '''grave markers in Hungary.  Example of a grave marker:'''

===Second given names and religious names===
 
*Hungarians do not commonly use second given names, nor their corresponding initials. While it is increasingly frequent that they are given one, they tend to choose one they prefer to use.

*When baptized, a child can get an additional name (baptismal name), especially if there is no saint who bears their name, so they take a name associated with a patron saint. In confirmation, children receive another given name, but it is not used. Both baptismal and confirmation names have religious significance only, and they are not on any official records.<ref>"Hungarian names", https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hungarian_names, accessed 28 February 2021.</ref>
