Karád (Croatian: Karadin) is a village in Somogy county, Hungary.

The settlement is part of the Balatonboglár wine region.[2]

Etymology[edit]

Its name derives from the Turkish person name, Kara (Hungarian: fekete, English: black). He could be the first owner of the settlement. The same applies to Kára.[3]

History[edit]

According to László Szita the settlement was completely Hungarian in the 18th century.[4]

Culture[edit]

The Hungarian folk songs Fót hátán fót, egy üngöm vót (in 1938) and A karádi faluvégen (in 1933) were collected in Karád by Gyula Dávid as well as Rén a bárány (in 1953) by László Vikár.
