Origin of Beganyi
If you would would like to provide more information please email me.
I have learned that the name Beganyi is a Magyar (Hungarian) name. The final
"i" in Beganyi
gives it the meaning "from Begany," which makes Begany a place name.
(Such surnames usually indicate that the family belonged to the lesser nobility.)
The names of these towns are, in Magyar, Kisbegany and Nagybegany. The Ukrainian names are Mala Bihan' and Velika Began'.
