Does anyone have any idea what would cause a Croatian family to take this surname? I've researched and asked all around the Internet but have yet to gather any actual information.
Thats nothing uncommon in Europe. People along borders tend to be mixed but even beyond border this is normal. Either your family had some Hungarian origin or this word was common among some Croat speeches.
