Etymology[edit]

From Old Hungarian mogyër.

  • The first element (mogy-) is likely from a Proto-Ugric *mańć- ‎(man, person), also found in the name of the Mansi (mäńćī, mańśi, måńś). It may have also had a meaning of ‘speaker; messenger’. In this case, it may ultimately derive from Proto-Uralic *mënɜ- ‎(to say), the original definition being preserved in magyaráz ‎(to explain).
  • The second element -ër ‘man’, retained in ember ‘man’ and férj ‘husband’, is cognate with Mari erɣǝ, erɣe ‘son, boy’ and Finnish yrkö ‎(man). It is from Proto-Uralic *irkä or *ürkä ‎(man, son, boy)
