===Name Order===
In Hungarian, the surname (or a family name) is placed in front of the given name. For example:   
+
Hungarian names usually consist of a single given name and a single surname (family name).  The surname is used before the given name. For example:   
    
{| align="center" width="647" class="plain FCK__ShowTableBorders"
 
{| align="center" width="647" class="plain FCK__ShowTableBorders"

|}
   −
*there is usually just one given name  
+
On FamilySearch Family Tree if Hungarian is selected in a person name field, the name will be displayed in Hungarian order:  surname before given name.  Selecting German or English changes the display order.  Enter the surname and given name in the relevant field and select the most appropriate language.  The most appropriate language generally reflects the language community in which the person lived most of their life.
*surnames are generally a single name
  −
*patronymic names were usually not used as a fixed surname
  −
*this rule is also followed in Hungarian parish registers
