Yes, this is the same name, in hungarian spelling.
Information about royalty named Be'la is easy to find in the
library. Look at hungarian history after 900 A.D.
Books should be plentiful, as the hungarian kings under the
Holy Crown played key roles in the history of Europe.
Also, see Tibor Barath, "the ancient hungarians", for
additional perspectives on word origins.
