These pages are devoted to the surname Orban and some other related names. All my research has been made exclusively on the Internet or by e-mail.

The name Orban is very common both in Belgium (where I was born) and in Hungary (where it is written Orbán), but it is also known many other countries throughout the world. What is its origin and its meaning?  That's what these pages are all about.

In a first page, you will see the etymology of the name Orban; another page shows some curiosities about this name. The next page shows the various countries where I was able to locate people with the name Orban, another page gives some details about some Orban's who became famous, and the last page gives some literature from or about the Orbans. Finally, there is also a page with Orban links and a page to thank the various and numerous contributors to this study.
