About the Magyar surname

Magyar pronounced approximately modyor ethnonym may very likely come from the name of antique méd (ma-ya-wad )nation who were at least in Libya called also mauri as inhabitants of Mauritania.

Méds of Asia colonised Eastern Europe as well and called their settlers sauromata nation,and this may result inthe presence of their name there in names of naions and regions like udmurt (a-wad-ma-war-et ),mordva (mawar-et-de-wa),wadya-maa that is Vot-Land and finally modyor.

Seemingly they left their original language and mixed with the sons of Ganda now called in general "finno-ugrians".

They are stated by helléns to have descended from one of the sons of Iasón or of Théseus from Médeia of Kolkhis called Médos or Médeios but in any case from the family of Poseidón called in the Byble A-Wa-ya-Se-Pa.

His son Man-Nesh-Sha-Ha begat for example Sha-Mawad-Egra father of A'n-Nawar-Ge-Ma and of A'eg-Hawan-Na of whom some real méds of Egrisi belonging to mann'shi nation,normáns and huns may descend.

Also Dide ga'in had a son called A-War-Awa-Ma-yat-te,who - regarded that muritu and tennet tribe are related to each other and both to did'inga - may be identical with An-Net-Ten-Na whose mother was A-Ba-Tesh-Ayag-Ra daughter of Egra-Me-Wa'el.

Their language now is stated to be distantly related to that of naan-di coming from Hia dynasty,that shows taht he might have ruled in Easern Asia and the remainder of his offspring there bearing the king's name is now naani and udi nation.

Anti-moro,anti-maraka and anti-fasi tribes in Madagaskar may also have come from them and be related to inhabitants of mauritanian Marrákes and Fás,and now speak a language related among others to maori that comes from levites in company of the tribe of Man-Nse-Sha-Ha . Ar-Ra'ayab-Ban-Na was called by greeks and latins respectively Arés or Gradívus,and especially seemingly of the son of his called Ak-Het-Se-Ra-Yen-Na of whom tsimi-heti tribe may descend.

This tribal population spoke the language of Yenisei related to akan of Africa,and het-rusk or raseyenna nation may also have come from there.

Anttesar and tengeredif tribes nearer to traditional Mauritania may have the same of origin of méds and didingas of Annet-Tenna mixed with akans : Annet-Tesh-Ar and Ten-Geradív.

From them may have some went to Canarias to found Tenerife as well and became called guanch that is gu-Annet-Tesh.

As early musulmans were called antsar it is possible that musulamios nation in antique Libya is identical with Annttesar of royal didinga origin,and they became called reaching South Europe ts'singár there speaking the levitic language of brakhmans.

Jews and christians call them Yosef,Manassheh,Shemudaa,'Aniam,'Akhin,Dawid ga'on,Yerimot,Natan,Bat-Shua,Khetsron.
