Rovásírás (Old-Hungarian script)

Old Hungarian script (Rovásírás) is the script the Hungarians used to use before the introduction of the Latin alphabet in 1000 because of the Kingdom of Hungary and Christianity. The name Rovás  comes from the Hungarian word for "cutting", because the letters were carved on wood or sticks. After 1000 the script did not disappear and remained in use in Transylvania.
Scholars suggest that Rovás is better suited to write Hungarian than the Latin script. The script is currently gaining popularity again. There are even proposals for missing letters as W and Q, to create new characters. There is even an official request for the script to be fully accepted into Unicode. Original the script was read from right to left, but now the other way is also common.

In eastern Hungary and Transylvania many places write their names now again in this script.
