About article:

Hungarian official office procedures which were being formed from the turn of the 12th century also resulted in establishing the office practice of using Hungarian or Hungarianized forms of local names in official Latin documents as official local names even in those areas where there was no Hungarian settlements and where these „official” local names were never used in the local spoken language. These forms of local names in Latin documents are not evidence of the Hungarian character of an ethnic settlement but are only evidence of the mentioned official practice. Information on an ethnic character of a settlement of a particular area within Ugria need to be acquired by more complex linguistic-historical research.
