Zoltán is a Hungarian masculine given name. It originates from the Old Turkish word soltan, sultan, meaning strong authority or rulership, which was borrowed from the Arabic sultan, and derived from an Arabic verb Sultah meaning authority or power. In modern times Zoltan and Sultan are used to mean king. Zoltan was one of the first kings of Hungary in the early 900s AD. Initially it was pronounced with s-, not with z-. The Hungarian male first names Solt and Zsolt have similar origin. Its female form is Zoltána. The name days for this name are 8 March and 23 June in Hungary, and 7 April in Slovakia.
