- The word first appeared in print in the late 19th century, often applied to people who were unwelcome among their family, friends and/or community. A common theory of the origin of this word is the merger of the first syllable of the word Hungarian and the last syllable of the ethnic slur Polack. However, a more likely origin is the Hungarian adjective hanyag, which has a variety of negative meanings including careless, sloppy, slothful, and slow. (Wiktionary)

“The “honyock” part is harder to translate; it’s a mildly perjorative term for a foolish person, with debatable origins as a slur used in the US Midwest against people of Eastern European origin… but as far as I know it’s just a general-purpose putdown now, sorta like “twit” or “lout.””
