13846RE: [S-R] Need translation or reference
- Nov 28, 2005From your description it sounds like it was an alternative first name. The
military record for the person I am researching lists "Jenő (János, Ödön),"
which were other names by which he was known.
The Hungarian word bohóc means clown or fool, but I wouldn't dare to guess
if this word is related.

Subject: [S-R] Need translation or reference
I have come across a strange word in a 1896 military passport document
for which I cannot find a reference. Does anyone know what the term
"Bohok" might mean? The word is in parenthesis between the first and
last names of the individual. There is an accent mark on the
second "o". Perhaps it was a nickname? It is used everytime the
individual's name appears in the document but I have not found the
term in any of the other records for this individual. I also have not
been able to find the term in either a Hungarian or a Slovak
