Ferenc Talányi (born Ferenc Temlin, Slovene: Franc Talanyi, or Talanji) (23 May 1883 – 9 July 1959) was a Slovene writer, journalist, and painter from Prekmurje.


Talányi was born Ferenc Temlin in Brezovci near Puconci in Hungary, the son of Mihály Temlin and Katalin Frankó, a Lutheran peasant family. He studied catering in Budapest and Germany. Temlin supported the policy of Magyarization and changed his surname to Talányi. He worked as a restaurateur in the Slovene March (Prekmurje), Ormož, and Bad Radkersburg while serving as editor of the almanac Dober pajdás kalendárium.

In 1919 Talányi supported the Hungarian Soviet Republic. After the communist dictatorship returned to the Prekmurje. In 1930 arrested, it turned out the communist past. At the time opposed the Magyarization and only went to the literature in the Prekmurje dialect, afterwards only the central Slovene language support. In 1941 briefly again supported the Magyarization. Then joined the communist partisans among the pseudonym Očka (Papa). At the end of World War II was captured and 9 years in German prisons was imprisoned. In 1955 in the Pomurski vestnik Talányi emphasized the communist past.
