Ungar Name Meaning

German, Hungarian (Ungár), and Jewish (Ashkenazic): ethnic name for a Hungarian or a nickname for someone who had trade relations with Hungary. Paradoxically, as a Hungarian name it is of foreign (probably German) origin. Despite the Finno-Ugric origin of the Magyars in most European languages they were mistakenly named after the Turkic Hun people (English Hungarian, German Ungarisch, Italian Ungerese, Russian Vengerskij etc.). The Hungarian ethnic name for a Hungarian is Magyar.
