Budmerice (Hungarian: Gidrafa) is a village and municipality in western Slovakia in Pezinok District in the Bratislava region.[1]

Names and etymology[edit]

The name comes from Slavic magnate name BudeměrЪ with Slavic/Slovak suffix -ice. The name was adopted by Germans as Pudmeritz what influenced also later Slovak name Pudmerice. In the 13-14 centuries, the name of Hungarian origin Kerestúr (1296 Keresthwr) had been also used in parallel, but was abandoned in favour of Slovak resp. German form (Pudmeritz, in 1899 renamed to Gidrafa).[2]
