"Új név a régi ház falán" (English translation: "New name on an old house") was the Hungarian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1995, performed in Hungarian by Csaba Szigeti.

The song was performed 13th on the night (following France's Nathalie Santamaria with "Il me donne rendez-vous" and preceding Belgium's Frédéric Etherlinck with "La voix est libre"). At the close of voting, it had received three points, placing 22nd in a field of 23.

The song is a ballad, with Szigeti singing about his attempt to meet with an old friend but having no luck. It appears, for example, that she has moved and that someone else now lives in her house.

Due to a change in qualification rules prior to the 1996 Contest, all entries had to pre-qualify based on the opinions of judges listening to recordings of the song, something which the proposed Hungarian entry for that Contest did not do. This rule was rescinded for the 1997 Contest, hence the song was succeeded as Hungarian representative at that Contest by V.I.P. with Miért kell, hogy elmenj?.
