Ungar Family History
Ungar Name Meaning
German and Jewish (Ashkenazic); Hungarian (Ungár): 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 they were in many European languages mistakenly named after the Turkic Hun people (English Hungarian German Ungar Italian ungherese etc.). This surname is also found in Slovenia. See also Unger and Magyar .
