    I doubt about it. Pannonia was inhabited by Pannonic Slavs when the nomadic Magyars invaded it. Many Hungarian words and toponyms (as well as many Hungarians themselves) are of Slavic origin, e.g. Pest - pec, печь (furnace). Balaton (in Czech Blatenské jezero) - maybe from blata, болото (marshland).
