        Hungarians are actually mostly Slav genetically, but they enjoy LARPing as proud Turkic horsemen.

          Hungarians are Uralic. They have no relationship to turks at all

            Hungarians are literally an Ugric tribe that mixed with a Turkic tribe in the steppes and then migrated to the Carpathian Basin and mixed with the locals there who had mixed with many other tribes before that.

      jokes aside it's because of grammar. in IE languages you put the adjective after the noun mostly and surenames are just adjactives. Like John of Glasgow or Harold of the Waterdrinkers. So the name becomes John Glasgow or Harold Waterdrinker. While we put the adjactive first so we say Waterdrinks Harold. But many places officialy use the "East Asian system" in Europe too.

    We still do what Iceland does. Almost exclusively for girls though, who become something-dotter.

      Do they lose their last name when they marry?

        Depends. Sometimes you see things like Larsdotter [Husband's family name]. Sometimes they only take the husband's name. Sometimes they don't change anything.

    Romanian is officially patronimic if you look at anyone's birth certificate.
    The Hungarians just copied the Habsburg's naming. It also happens that someone who is Romanian in Transilvania would occasionally say his family name first even if he's not a local Hungarian.

    >mother's surname + father's surname
    huh? how does that work? Does everyone have double surnames? You use both? And when your mother and your father both already have double surnames, which ones do you get?

      Everyone has two, and they use the name of their mother's father and their father's father.

      >how does that work?
      you inherit names from your father and mother up to 4 surnames with a maximum of 6 names
      my name goes [first name] [second name] [maternal grandmother's surname] [maternal grandfather's surname] [paternal grandmother's surname] [paternal grandfather's surname]
      >you use both?
      in official documents always, I only sign my first and last names tho
      >And when your mother and your father both already have double surnames, which ones do you get?
      pick 4, choice is up to the parents

        95% of people only get 2 surnames, Mother's and Father's last surname.

        And they only sign with the last one (so, Father's)

      Yes you have two surnames. Your parents also have two surnames, you get your father's first surname and your mother's first surname.
      If you wanted you can form super long surname chains with all of your great or great great parent's surnames in the right order, but that won't have any legal validity, legally you can just have two surnames.

    We use Family Name + Given Name far more often. We also add, or used to add, the godparent's name in the middle.

        Thing is, their "main name" is the first surname, while here it's the last one.

        So we both prioritize the father's name, the difference is the order only.

    The Hungarian or eastern word order is in widespread unofficial use at least in ex-Yugoslavia, Austria, Germany and Czechia. To my mind it denotes stiff, crusty conservatives, mostly educated men, the kind who put their academic titles on their doorbell.

    Fun fact:
    For many decades we forbid the SP*cniards from using their moorish creole naming conventions and if they shat out their hell spawn on DUTCH soil they would be internationally legally named after our convention.
