A very unscientific search of the surname HANS on Family Search showed that the name is particularly common in Germany and Scandanavia. However, it's not that unusual in Hungary. Not surprising since a large number of Hungarian Jews immigrated to Hungary from Austria, Bohemia, and Moravia in the mid- to late 18th century. Coincidentally, I also have HANS/HANZ from Sziget and Karacsonfalva, Maramaros in my tree.
