Hungarian Girls' names?
My husband is Hungarian and I would love to pay homage to that in our daughter's middle name, but I'm having difficulty finding Hungarian names that "really work." We've decided on the first name Lucy and our last name is S***o.
Thank you so much for any suggestions!

In an English-speaking country you can't use diacritical (accent) marks in names, so I would try to avoid ones that absolutely depend on them for proper pronunciation. Hungarian is an odd, odd language, completely unrelated to English or any other European language (except perhaps Finnish), so it will strike the anglophone ear as very exotic.
You could take two tacks: 1) use Christian names in their Hungarian version; 2) pick true Hungarian names where the pronunciation is absolutely unambiguous.
Aranka (Hungarian name meaning 'gold')
Emese (Hungarian name meaning 'mother')
Hajna (Hungarian name meaning 'dawn'-- J is prn Y)
Mariska (little Mary)
Petra (Peter, feminine)
Timea (modern invented Hungarian name)
