I always thought Szegény it's only the opposite of rich.

Wait, is that ‘poor’ as in ‘unfortunate’ or ‘not wealthy’?

I think they're the same in alot of languages - it kinda makes sense, the most unfortunate people were often the poorest members of society: orphans, beggars, the homeless or crippled, etc.
