Boróka (f), pronounced BO-ro-kaw , from the Hungarian word , meaning “juniper.” boróka Csenge (f), pronounced CHENG-geh, derived from the Hungarian word , meaning “to ring, clang.” cseng Csongor (m), pronounced CHONG-gor, possibly derived from a Turkic word meaning “falcon.” Emese (f), pronounced EH-meh-sheh, possibly derived from the Finno-Ugric word eme, meaning “mother.” This was the name of the grandmother of Árpád (845-907), considered by many Hungarians to be the founder of the country. Hanga (f), pronounced HAWNG-gaw, from the Hungarian word , meaning “heather.” hanga Szabolcs (m), pronounced SAW-bolch, of unknown meaning but possibly derived from a Slavic word meaning “marten.”
