Kőrösi Csoma Society
{{Unreferenced, date=April 2008 Korossy is a Hungarian surname. Some variations of the spelling of this surname are as follows: Kőrösi, Kőrösy, Kőrössi, Kőrössy, Körösi, Körösy, Körössi, Körössy, Korosi, Korosy, Korossi, and Korossy. The surname appears to be based on the Hungarian word ''körös''. By definition, the word means round/circular. Geographically, it is the name of a river (Körös) as well as the Hungarian name of the town of Križevci, Croatia. In addition, the Hungarian towns of Kiskőrös and Nagykőrös are often commonly referred to as ''Kőrös'' – as "ő" is simply the long variant of "ö" with the difference being almost negligible.

In the late Middle Ages, it was common for Hungarian noble families with names derived in a similar way from a toponym to spell th ...
