    Hungarian (Horváth): ethnic name for a Croat (in particular a Croatian refugee from the Turks, i.e. the Ottoman Empire), from an old spelling of Hungarian Horvát, itself from Croatian Hrvat. This could also be a nickname for a Hungarian who lived in Croatia, who had dealings with Croatia, or who often traveled there (from 1091 to 1526 the present-day Croatia was under Hungarian rule). The surname in the form Horváth is also very frequent in Slovakia and Czechia (see Charvat ). See also Horvat , compare Horwath .

    Jewish (from Hungary; Horváth): adoption of the Hungarian surname in 1 above because it has some sounds in common with the original surname such as, presumably, Horowitz .
