Do you recognize this signature?

I bought several original oil paintings in the Montreal area about thirty years ago. They are all of landscapes and all bear a purplish hue around the cabins that are pictured.

They were reported to me by the sales clerk to have been painted by a man of the Hungarian heritage by the name of "Bernard." said to be from the Verdun/LaSalle area. You can see from the photo that the signature looks like that but may be saying something else. Do you recognize "Bernard"?
