Alexandra Kemendy said about Kemendy : The name "Kemendy" for my branch of the Kayser family in and near Bak, Hungary and Keszthely, Hungary has the following history: during World War II, my father, Miklós Imre Kayser and his brother, Gyula Kayser were both in the Hungarian armed forces. Hungary was occupied by Nazi Germany. A decree was issued by the head of the Hungarian armed forces that all members must "Hungarianize" their names. Since my family's name, Kayser, was insufficiently Hungarian, both he and his brother must make their name more Hungarian. To this end, they chose the name "Kemendy". The "Kemendy" part came from land that the family owned in NW Hungary, Kemend-Olár". The "y" was added at the end to denote that the bearer of this name came from the estate of Kemend-Olár. Only nobility could use the "y". As my family had been part of the nobility for as far back as anyone could remember, they were allowed to use the "y" to signify their nobility. The name "Kemendy", then means: someone of noble birth from the estate of Kemendy-Olár. It is like the German "von"" Braun" or the English "Robin of Locksley". Only landed nobility could use these titles. So, all the rest of the family remained "Kayser", while Miklós and Gyula were now known as Kemendy in order to obey the military decree.
