According to legend, one of the sons of Attila the Hun was named Csaba, and this prince became the leader of the Székely people who settled in Transylvania. According to history, this was an old Magyar personal name that had pretty much died out by the end of the middle ages. It was revived in the 19th century by Vörösmarty (a famous poet/writer), but it didn't become popular until a good century later. It is currently consistently in the top 50 masculine names in Hungary.
