Torok Name Meaning
Hungarian (Török): ethnic name from török ‘Turkish’. The name was borne by people of ethnic Turkish descent, but also sometimes given to people who were captured by the Turks or someone who had taken part in the wars against the Ottoman Empire. In other cases the surname may be from a habitational name, from the use of a picture of a Turk as a house sign.
