Hungarian Surnames #hungary

Melchior Lengyel was a Hungarian writer who was born Lebovics Menyhe'rt.

My first question pertains to his surnames. Is Menyhe'rt the Hungarian
equivalent of Melchior?
In pursuing my own family history, I have seen both names used for, I
believe, the same person, in documents >from the late 18th century in
Gyula-Jovancza.

The second question:
Is the female surname Erzset equivalent to Erzsebet and Elisabeth?
Here again, I believe I am seeing this surname used for the same person.

Thank you for any feedback that can be provided.
