Names of Jewish characters appearing in Borsszem Jankó in the first third of the 20th century  


This study examines the names of Jewish characters in a Hungarian humour magazine entitled Borsszem Jankó (‘Tom Thumb’) in issues published between 1901 and 1937. The author compares the name stock of this period with that examined in a previous analysis. It can be ascertained that the new Jewish name-giving practices giving preference to Hungarian first names in the first decades of the 20th century are reflected in the magazine as well. In the surname stock of the Jewish figures, names referring to a personal feature are still dominant. The author also discusses the main characteristics of family names affected by name changes as they appear in the magazine. The morphological and semantic features of the last group of surnames often display the typical purpose of family name changes: choosing a surname which suggests the old and noble origin of the family. The cultural incongruence between first names and Magyarized family names is an important source of humour in the magazine.
