Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I had an low-lying suspicion that you might come up with a clever response ...

Well, no doubt Hungarian - Scottish intermarriage was real, but I do have doubts about the specific stories that have been woven about the Hungarian origins of my surname. It'd be lovely, but my guess is that "we" were probably just a lot of Scottish farmers. : )

Of course, as you indicate, geneology is a species of mythology, but I accept myth, in this case, to the extent that it enables me to embrace mythical farming, as opposed to mythical courtly, origins.

Only because I like the conclusion.
