Garadna is a village in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, Hungary.[citation needed]

Etymology[edit]

The name comes from Slavic/Early Slovak adjective gradná - "belonging to the castle", "an extramural settlement". The name was adopted by Hungarians before the spiratization of Slavic /g/ to /h/.[1] See e.g. Veľká Hradná (Slovakia).
