Please list surnames of Hungarian origin. These can include Hungarian roots and Polish suffixes.

Bernatowicz is of Hungarian origin (atleast the root is), Szabowicz is of Hungarian origin (atleast the root is) and Akosowicz.

Merged: Is my surname of Ruthenian or Rusyn origin?

Here I am again, sent back by a wall of geology. Is 'Bernatowicz' of Ruthenian or Rusyn origin? Thanks

I suppose that my family name 'Pajdo' must therefore be possibly Goral, perhaps Slovak, in origin.

Try Hungarian. From "paitas". Influenced by Polish "pajda", which is a word of Turkish origin. My guess is that the protoplast was a Vlach, an ethnic group that once dominated the highlands of the Carpathians. The Górals are descended from Vlach herdsmen, as are present-day Rumanians.

Makes as much sense as any explanation. Thanks, DominicB!

My Grandmother Julia Witeczek name is shown on ellis island passenger record from the ship MAIN, Bremen, Germany with an Ethnicity of Austrian, Ruthenian with a place of residence in Niwza, Galicia. She arrived with her two sons (same last name) in NYC on December 28,1909. She was 27 years old. I have always been told I Grandmother was Polish. All the manifests show the same last name with czek not czuk.

Can this be an incorrect entry. Or am I Ukrainian?

My surname is Kapas, and my grandparents came from Poland. Now I have been told that Kapas is a Hungarian surname. Can anyone clarify if there was a significant migration of Hungarians to Poland and when? Thank you.

Kapaś is also used in Ukraine. Google Andriej Kapaś, a Polish tennis player born in Ukraine.
I believe there were some Hungarian immigrants to Poland, but there were definitely more Ukrainians/Ruthenians.
You'd have to study your family history to find out more.
