As shown by a legend recorded
As shown by a legend recorded in Immobilien in Budapest records from the Middle Ages, “Buda” comes from the name of its creator, Bleda, kin of Hunnic ruler Attila.
There are a couple of theories about Pest. One states that the name gets from Roman events, since there was a local stronghold (Contra-Aquincum) called by Ptolemaios “Pession” (“Πέσσιον”, iii.7.§ 2). Another has it that Pest starts in the Slavic word for cave, пещера, or peštera. A third alludes to пещ, or pešt, alluding to a cave where flames burned-through or a limekiln.

The Roman settlement – Aquincum – transformed into the standard city of Pannonia Inferior in 106 AD. from the earliest starting point it was a military settlement, and step by step the city rose around it, making it the purpose of assembly of the city’s business life. Today this region identifies with the Óbuda region inside Budapest. The Romans created roads, amphitheaters, showers and houses with warmed floors in this fortified military camp.
