ZELIG / ZELIK/ ZOLTAN #general

Good guess! The Hippocrene Concise English-Hungarian/Hungarian
English dictionary states that the origin of the name Zoltan is
debated but agrees with Udi that the name may be the same word as
"sultan".

Dear JewishGenners.

This is only a guess:

The Hungarian name Zoltan, maybe brought by Gypsies >from Turkey (Sultan
Muslim Ruler/King?
If a Jewish person got that name than in Yiddish he may have got that
nickname.

Regards.
