I used to use Hungarian notation when working in a weakly-typed language, but quickly gave it up when working with C# and .NET.

It wasn't just because C# is strongly typed; it was also because of:

- Property names and data binding
- Mapping database table and column names to classes and ORM's
- Serializing / deserializing objects to / from XML
- Configuration files
- Reflection.

Hungarian notation might be fine if your "names" never see the light of day; in most other cases, it gets ugly and geeky really fast.
