Synonyms grouped alphabetically by country are Dicktraube, Resser, Ressertraube, Sicktraube (Austria); Armas, El Grasz, Gras, Grasz, Grasă, Grasă Crocantă, Grasă de Cotnar, Grasă di Cotnari, Grasă Galbena, Grasă Mare, Grasă Mică, Grasă Verde, Grasi, Grassa, Grassa Mare, Grassa Mica, Poamă Grasă, Som (Romania); Bajor, Fehér Kövérszőlő, Fehérszőlő, Fejérszőlő, Furmint, Kövérszőlő, Pataki (Hungary). The very old variety is probably identical with Fehérszölö mentioned in the Tokaj region. The ampelographer Hermann Goethe (1837-1911) mentioned it under Kövér Szöllö already in 1876 and mentions Transylvania as its origin.
