Hungarian names - how do we translate them?

 
In Hungary, Kovacs is the second most common surname, but its etymology is a bit unclear. Kovács in Hungarian means blacksmith, but its origins can be found in Slavonic as Kova. Variations of the same surname are: Kovach (Carpatho-Russian), Kowal (Poland) and Koval (Ukraine).

The policy practiced in Hungary is everything to be translated into the official language of the country. Equivalent surname for Kovács in English is Smith, but translated text uses the original name, as it appears in the source language.

The Hungarian language is part of the chain that stretched from 7000 to 10,000 years ago along the Ural Mountains. It is said that Hungarian is related to Finnish, but one must consider that the Hungarian speaking population is at one end of the mountain chain and the Finnish on the other. What the two have in common today? For example, a system of grammatical cases quite elaborate. Depending on what the speaker wants to express, a prefix or suffix is added to the basic word.

Such a linguistic process leads to the creation of very long linguistic words like "megszentségteleníthetetlenséges" which translates as "something that is almost impossible to desecrate". The keyword in this case "szent" means divine, sacred, holy.
