Hungarian term or phrase: gyevat
last name
Mary Gyevat
English translation:gyevat
Explanation:
I've never heard this word and haven't found in any dictionary, so I think it isn't a Hungarian word.

It is a very rare family name in Hungary: there are two persons called Gyev¨˘t (a + acute accent) in the Budapest phone book.

It sounds like a Slavic word.
There are two similar words in Russian: §Ő§Ö§Ó§Ń§ä§î is 'to put' in English and §Ő§Ö§Ó§ń§ä§î is 'nine'.

(If you want to ask your question in Slavic languages then change gyevat to devat.)

vezetéknév


Explanation:
a szószerinti utolsó név többszörösen félrevezető, mert a "családi név, vagy vezetéknév" a magyarban előbb áll, mint a keresztnév, vagy utónév. A vezetéknév a vezet, elől áll és a név összepárosításából származik.

"gyevat"


Explanation:
"gyevat" there is no English translation for this word. However:the Hungarian "gy" has exactly the same sound as "ď" in Slovak.
So,"gyevat"(in Hungarian) = "ďeväť" (number 9 in Slovak) meaning number "nine" in English or "kilenc = 9" in Hungarian.
It is a historical fact, that Slovak, or other Slav words and German etc. were incorporated into the Hungarian language and such words are used even today. Surnames were written and documented in Hungarian up until 1918 in the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, ignoring the wishes of many of their citizens.
I hope this explanation is satisfactory.

agree  Apolonia Vanova: All Slavic languages have similar spelling or pronunciation for number "9".

agree  Csaba Ban: The Polish 9 is slightly different in pronounciation: "djeve-yonch". Written down, the similarity with other Slavic languages is more apparent.

9


Explanation:
# 2 has the closest answer - there is definitely no such HUngarian word. It is very similar to "9" in Slovak, but the Slovak word is spelled in a HUngarian way.
