Tóth (sometimes Toth) is a very common surname in Hungary, meaning "Slav" and later "Slovak" in old Hungarian (now spelt tót). [citation needed]

It can also mean "Croat", since one of the Hungarian names for Slavonia (the northern part of Croatia, bordering to Hungary) was Tothorszag;[1] although Horváth is the more usual contemporary formulation.

The surname Toth is also a less common German surname (Tod), which is a variation of the old German word for 'death'.
