Comments for LÁSZLÓ:

I do not agree with this opinion, that the Hungarian László (Laslo) name is formed of the Slavic Vladislav.

This is my name, that I got from my parents, and I believe this name is not Slavic. I think it is rather from the older Sarmatian. It is very similar to Lancelot (mentioned on Britain area, but neither British nor Celtic name).
Lancelot -> Lanselo, Laslo. More probable than Vladislav -> Ladislav, Ladslav, Ladslo, Laslo (because Sarmatians went to the British island in the III. century as the Roman 6th legion which was an 5500-men jazig heavy-cavalry auxilary army.)

I am from a region of Hungary named Jász-ság (means jász (jas) area) in Hungarian language. It was formed in the XI-XIII. century as a national area what became the home of the Jases within Hungary (they were the best elite horsemen, so they were welcomed in Hungary warmly, even by Saint I. László principally, and they got very serious privileges). It was a return for them, because they already had been living in this area in the Roman ages before Hungarians, that was the Jazig-Empire in the history. Although there is relation between Jases and Hungarians (both came from the Scythian-root), but Jases were not Hungarians, they spoke different language. My ancestors are Jases (jazigs), which is a Sarmatian nation, one of the three Sarmatian branches (Alan, Roxalan, Jazig).

The name László is very often used in my home, and we do not have any Slavic relationship. Although the Hungarian king, Saint I. László had relation to Poland, but I think his name did not come from the Slavic language or name. Maybe the Slavic Vladislav or Ladislau name is also a transcription of the primal Sarmatian name. I found that Polish nobles also had believed so.

"The Szlachta or noble/gentry ethos exerted a particularly strong influence on Polish national culture. From the17th century onward, it was known as the "Sarmatian" culture, from the name of the ancient eastern tribe that Polish nobles believed to be their ancestor."

"LASZLO!" Shouted Tallulah (three L's, one H), the annoyingly nasally showgirl (or whatever she was) in the Doctor Who episodes "Daleks in Manhatten" and "Evolution of the Daleks."

It's all so clear, now. Bill Joyce must be a Dr. Who fan. He named two of his characters Tallulah and Laszlo in his children's book, "A Day with Wilbur Robinson." Tallulah is Wilbur's older sister, while Laszlo is a cousin who has invented an anti-gravity belt. When the book was made into the Disney movie "Meet the Robinsons," Tallulah and Laszlo were made sister and brother (Grandpa Bud's niece and nephew). Added to Laszlo's belt was a paint gun that he proves himself quite skilled with.

Actually, after some research I've discovered it's the other way around. The creators of Doctor Who are clearly William Joyce fans. They took the names Tallulah and Lazlo and wrote an episode featuring the codifier of the name, Tallulah Bankhead (although she was in London in 1930, but that's historical license for you). It's what we tropers call Fridge Brilliance.

I love this name! I actually ended up giving it to one of my kittens. It fits him perfectly, I think. And he even kind of looks like the cartoon monkey from Camp Lazlo :P
