What language, apart from English, is the one with the most European influence in its vocabulary aside from its own?
German seems to be a strong contender. It has many Latin-rooted words (either through Latin itself or French), with some English ones.

I'd say some slavic language because slavs are backward and backward people tend to adopt foreign words to name modern things coming from outside.

A statistical analysis sorting Romanian words by etymological source carried out by Macrea (1961)[86] based on the DLRM[87] (49,649 words) showed the following makeup:[88]
43% recent Romance loans (mainly French: 38.42%)
20% inherited Latin
11.5% Slavic, including Bulgarian, Serbo-Croatian, Ukrainian, and Russian
4% Turkish
2.40% Modern Greek
2.17% Hungarian
2% German

Nah. If you normalize by word frequency most of the words are inherited Latin.

word frequency normalized every language will become suddenly super-conservative
>Although the lexical percentage of native words in Hungarian is 55%, their use accounts for 88.4% of all words used

German is literally a Latin-Slavic creole though for now it's a rather unpopular opinion.

Do Hungarians realise that most of the toponyms are of Slavic origin?

So you're not. Budapest is Slavic, Esztergrom is Slavic and your fancy first capital is basically a literall translation of former major Slavic settlement.

Pest is Slavic, Esztergom is debated, could also be Ister (Danube) + Garam (river the flows into Danube above Esztergom) or 'curve' in Hungarian.

Is this supposed to refer to Székesfehérvár?

"After the Migration Period Fejér County was the part of the Avar Khaganate,[2] while the Slavic and Great Moravian presence is disputed. (There is no source for the name of the place before the late 10th century.) In the Middle Ages its Latin name was Alba Regalis/Alba Regia"
