Re: Village name help needed
- After Helen's valiant attempt, I'll take a wild stab in the dark.
If you separate the "Szan" from the "Szanigy", as in removing the
Hungarian prefix "Szent" or Saint, you can try locating the last
part phonetically .... Saint Nigy, Nagy, or some similar, even
wildly similar phonetic combination.
Good speculation, and good luck!
