Őrbottyán is a town in Pest county, Hungary. Bottyán is an old Hungarian given name for boys, meaning mace. Prefix Őr literally means "guard" in Hungarian and refers to the nearby hill Őrhegy, which was a fortress in the middle ages. The today settlement was created in 1970 with the unification of two small villages, named Őrszentmiklós and Vácbottyán. It became town in 2013.
