I live in Romania very close to Lugoj, in the same region, so being close to the border with Hungary I also speak hungarian fluently and even went there plenty of times. I have never in my life heard someone with the name Chocul, not in Romania, not in Hungary.

For anyone like me who loves Count Chocula cereal, Chocolate Lucky Charms make a decent substitute for the rest of the year. Not exactly the same, but still delicious, especially since Lucky Charms is already my favorite cereal. Well, it was until I tried Chocolate Lucky Charms, and unlike Count Chocula, I can buy them year round at Walmart.

I can tell you that as a native Hungarian that Chocul is NOT a common name at all and I've never heard of it🤫

Lol Mat it is pronounced "Con-teh" and its not the same as count bc of a minor differente wich is that this word is at the 2nd person (the person that "you" in english is also part of) in the third person (the person that uses "they") its "ducele" and pronounced as "Do-che-leh" Also it is pronounced as "tzepesh" and wrote as "Țepeș" there are a lot more words and stuff you got wrong but y'know saying all of them would be a petty waist of time so just check the spelling and pronounctiation whenever you have words that are foreign (also just a fun fact Dracul in Romania means "The devil" )

I feel like it should be mentioned - historically, the disease that made people think of someone as a vampire is known as porphyria. It's a genetic disorder which lowers the hemoglobin count of those who have it, making them crave bloody, raw meat, forcing the flesh on their gums to pull back and become gaunt, and causing them to sunburn incredibly easily and painfully. The cause of the disease? Inbreeding, of course.

Fun fact (because I stumbled over it literally yesterday and thought it was really funny to stumble over one dynasty in such a short period of time): Pretty much all the power of the dynasty of Habsburg was gained by forgery of documents, the "Privilegium Maius" to be precise. The dynasty did have its high time around 1273, where Rudolf I. became King of the holy roman empire. The rise of the dynasty came to a sudden halt when the nephew of the second Habsburgian king killed his uncle out of greed. The crone went to the Luxemburg Heinrich VII. and the Habsburgians where out of the game for a while. But in 1359, Rudolf IV. had the idea to create a document that would give his house huge advantages for taxes, areas, courtsystems... inspired by the real existing "Privilegium Minor". While Karl IV. never accepted his claims after a historican revealed them as the plump forgeries they were. However, almost 100 years later, the Habsburgian Friedrich III. became king in 1442 and Emperor in 1453 and validated those documents, which were then considered accurate (without anyone remembering that they were actually proven to be fake before) until the old empire was disbanded and a historican proved them wrong again in the middle of the 19th century. So, here is really long historical fun fact, nobody asked for xD (that might aswell have been the inspiration for game of thrones xD). The link to the source for this is (, for anyone bothering to read the long version in german ;)
