Molnár

Summary
Molnár (or Molnar) is a Hungarian surname meaning "miller". The name may be a loanword from the Slavic mlynar (with the same meaning), which is also the same in Belarusian (млынар); however, it is most likely derived from the Old Germanic Mulinari. The word itself shares a common ancestry with numerous similar surnames across Europe, such as the Dutch Molenaar, the Italian Molinari, the Danish and Norwegian Møller, and the Spanish Molinero, all meaning “miller”. Molnár was the name of one of Hungary’s most iconic playwrights, Ferenc Molnár (1878-1952). Other people with the name include:
  • Albert Szenczi Molnár (1574–1634), Hungarian Calvinist pastor, linguist, philosopher, poet, religious writer and translator
  • Antal Molnár (1890–1983), Hungarian musicologist; :hu:Molnár Antal
  • Balázs Molnár (born 1977), Hungarian footballer
  • Charles Molnar (1935–1996), American electrical engineer and computer developer
  • Charley Molnar (born 1961), American football coach
