Magyarország (The Hungarian name for their country) is derived from the Magyar tribe that settled in Hungary. The Magyar tribe was one of the many tribes united under the Huns. In basic terms, the name means Hungarian Country. Magyar for Hungarian, and orszag for Country. (that is not an actual translation) The name "Hungary" Is probably a combination of the Hun empire and a mispronunciation of Magyar.
