Budai Name Meaning

Hungarian: habitational name for someone from Buda, the old capital of Hungary, today part of Budapest. The etymology of the place name is uncertain, but is probably a derivative of Bod or Bud, a personal name of Turkic origin (see Boda). There are other places so called in Heves and Zala counties, and in former Kolozs county in Transylvania (now in Romania), which may also have given rise to the surname.
