This etymology is very strange. Hungarian sárga comes from a Turkic language. Can it be a coincidence that carrot is somewhat yellow, and the Slavs just call it šargarepa and it happens to match the Hungarian word sárga although it is not Slavic. I suspect it is just sárga + répa. Maybe the Slavs got their name from Hungarian. Qorilla 10:02, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

It's a compound of sárga + répa as you suspected. --Panda10 22:15, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
