Proper names as sources of prejudice  


Chances of career success for minorities have been the subject of Hungarian and international research into prejudice from different methodological points of view. Most such surveys focus on the Roma population, or are oriented to labour market-related issues. The degree of prejudice against certain Hungarian minorities (especially against Gypsies and Jews) in the majority society can easily be detected from these studies; systematic research into discrimination based on one’s name, however, has not yet been so extensive. This paper intends to demonstrate that the presence of this social phenomenon using Hungarian and international examples, and calls attention to the fact that such research is necessary to fill an existing gap.
