I have an ancestor, a great-great grandmother, with the surname of Hala who died in Budapest in the mid-1800s when it was part of the Austrian Empire and was married to an Austrian from Vienna. The surname Hala is now most common in Austria, Hungary, and Poland, but does anybody know where it originates from or what it means? I'm having a hard time finding any information on it. Thanks in advance!
