Hungarians, also known as Magyars (Hungarian: magyarok), are a nation and ethnic group who speak Hungarian and are primarily associated with Hungary. The Hungarian people refer to themselves by the demonym “Magyar” rather than “Hungarian”. “Magyar” is Finno-Ugric from the Old Hungarian “mogyër”. “Magyar” possibly derived from the name of the most prominent Hungarian tribe, the “Megyer”. The tribal name “Megyer” became “Magyar” in reference to the Hungarian people as a whole. “Magyar” may also derive from the Hunnic “Muageris” or “Mugel”.
