16th c. Hungarian Names (1340 words)
Initially I wasn't going to include the names in the 1560 list, especially since the spellings from that source were standardized, but I then noticed there was very little overlap with the list from 1574.
One important difference between the two source lists is that the author of the 1560 list modernized spellings of the names, whereas the 1574 source list preserves the original spellings.
The 1560 material does not list all the names from the original source, but rather a compiled list in which each name element appears but once.
