Jozef Miloslav Hurban (19 March 1817 in Beckov, Kingdom of Hungary, Austrian Empire, now Slovakia - 21 February 1886 in Hlboké, Kingdom of Hungary, Austria-Hungary, now Slovakia), pseudonyms Slavomil F. Kořennatý, Ľudovít Pavlovič, M. z Bohuslavíc, M. Selovský, was a leader of the Slovak National Council and the Slovak Uprising in 1848/1849, a Slovak writer, journalist, politician, organizer of Slovak cultural life and a Protestant priest. He first supported Ján Kollár, but later turned to Ľudovít Štúr. His son Svetozár Hurban-Vajanský followed his father's footsteps both as a writer and nationalist.

The city of Hurbanovo in southern Slovakia and asteroid 3730 Hurban are named after him.
