Its origin is still debated as far as I know but don't think that it is of Arabic.Is -gil from Arabic?
Kayalar is generally not being used for family names (but rarely used,for instance it can be seen on apartment names to be deemed as family name (e.g. "Kayalar düğüne davet edilmedi" or "Kayalar apartmanı"). though,it is commonly used in spoken turkish.I think I am lost, I do not understand. Why is Kayalar rare? What does -giller mean?
Yes, you are right. It's the exact equivalence of "anyukámék" in Turkish but I just don't know if "anyukámék" is used in Hungarian.So annemgil means maybe more : anyukámék? did you want to write that, right?
It may have as well been named "Simpsongiller" but they simply prefered "Simpsonlar". But I remember a cartoon which is called Jetgiller (A Jetson család/The Jetsons).I had just checked "The Simpons" Simpsonlar so could it be "Simpsongiller"
Most probably, given the number of languages spoken throughout the world. Would love to hear if you find out any.I am more curious if something like our -ék and your -gil exists in other languages.
Sure, it would be great!Maybe we should start a Hungarian-Turkish thread, you seem to understand nice Hungarian.
Yes, it is "kardeşimgil". Some other examples, then, are:tesómék /my brother's family/ -- would you say: kardeşimgil?
