I would use ön, instead of maga.
"És ön honnan való?" - This is absolutely polite enough! 😎
Thanks for the question!
When asking "where are you from", the expression "és te/maga, honnan való" is enough polite?
'I'm very sorry!' means 'Nagyon sajnálom!'
How do you say I'm very sorry
Good question! 😊
You’re right! Both mean: Where are you from? but
’Honnan jöttél’ is used in informal situations, for example when you meet new friends,
’Honnan származik’ emphasizes the origin of the person: What’s your (country of) origin? and is more likely to be used in official, formal situations.
I hope you enjoy learning Hungarian with us.
What is the difference between Honnan jöttél? and Honnan származik? From what I understand they both mean "Where are you from?". Are they used in different social interactions or are they interchangeable?
Thank you for the cute emojis!

Köszönjük szépen a hozzászólást! I think that your comment will help other learners as well!
First, let me give you some alternatives that you can use to ask - how are you?
Hogy vagy? polite: hogy van? plural: hogy vannak?
Mi újság? familiar register meaning what's new?
Mi a helyzet? familiar register meaning what's up?
Mizu? very familiar, contracted form of mi újság?
Let me give you some replies that you can use:
Hogy vagy? - Jól vagyok, köszönöm, és te? polite: Köszönöm szépen, jól vagyok, és ön hogy van?
Mi újság? - semmi különös, és veled? . = nothing special, and you?
Mi a helyzet? - minden rendben, és veled?. - everything's all right, and you?
Mizu? - semmi különös, minden oké.
I hope that these examples will help you start conversation in Hungarian. 😉

I think you should add a more catch-all reply to "Hogy van" or Hogy vagy" that is more appropriate to English speakers. For instance the reply being, "I'm fine thanks, how are you?" or "i'm good thanks, how are you" or "I'm fine thanks how are all of you(plural)". It took me a lot of time to come up with something similar with my limited knowledge of the language - but this would be extremely helpful if I make it be Hungary soon.
