Why is Hungary called Hungary? – VIDEO
Have you noticed that the Hungarian language and city names are not so easy either to pronounce or to remember? It is sometimes even a mystery for us, Hungarians, to understand where these names come from (for example, the ‘kecske’=’goat’ part in Kecskemét…). The YouTube channel Well… Actually explains why Hungary is called Hungary.
Just think about the awkward situations where the Hungarian capital city, Budapest, is confused with the Romanian capital city, Bucharest. However, there is something more awkward, or even funnier: the similarity between the country’s name, Hungary, and the adjective ‘hungry’.
