Anyways, I'm called the way I am because it's allowed when one or both parents are not-Hungarian... lucky me

The Mad Collector wrote:Any children are named after the father so if dad is called Sven for example then male children have the surname Svenson and females are Svendottir and you don't change your surname when married. This means that mother, father and two children can easily have four different surnames.
