Kiss also features twice in her own right as an example of orthography in the Chicago Manual of Style 16th edition (2010) which uses her name as an example of a Hungarian surname beginning with an initial "É. Kiss", not "Kiss". This kind of surname is categorized under the initial "É." in indexes, not under "K."[4] Hungarian names do not typically have middle names. Her father is the academician É. Kiss, Sándor.
