Jewish community in Hungary was back in time quite strong and families had numerous members.. Large numbers of Jews moved to the growing cities in the 15th century; the first "historical communities" were formed at that time (Buda, Esztergom, Sopron, Tata, Óbuda). Budapest has some 20 synagogues. The 19th-century Dohány Synagogue in Budapest is the largest in Europe (second largest in the world) and was recently renovated. http://www.worldjewishcongress.org/en/communities/26

Thank You for adding info. for varga as occupational name in Hungary.
When the name is found in other countries outside those of its origin, it may not be possible to tell whether it is Hungarian or Iberian.
