There are two alphabets that are sometimes referred to, the smaller and greater Hungarian alphabets.

The greater alphabet contains the letters Q, W, X and Y which are only found in foreign words.

However, the letters W and Y do occur in some Hungarian aristocratic surnames.


There are some archaic letters that occur in family names:

  • aa, aá
  • ch, ts
  • eö, ew
  • cz
  • oo, oó
  • th
  • y
  • w
