I read a little about that, tonite.
In the 400s, Attila the Hun settled the area of Hungary (actually
not the same border). He more or less retired there.
In the 800s, the Magyars, also from Asia, invaded the same area.
So, modern Hungarians are probably descendants of the Magyar.
But the name could be derived from the Hun (I have no evidence
of that so far, just beginning my search). However, those
Magyar are likely the ancestors of later Kings of Hungary.
Why was this called Hungary and not Magyary is probably a matter
of geography, not of demographics... An opinion...
