Go back 1,000 years to find a perfect name.

If you’re looking for a meaningful name steeped in Church history, look to the old Kingdom of Hungary for some inspiration. The country will be hosting the Eucharistic Congress in a matter of days, and the Catholic faith is an integral part of Hungarian history and culture.

Some of the names of these saints, many of whom were key in bringing the Catholic faith to the Central European region, are distinctly Hungarian, while others are more traditional and familiar.

So click on the slideshow below to learn more about these influential men who had both Hungary and God in their hearts.
