I love this name its so sweet and romantic, and you just know that she would be a lovely person!

This is a sweet name for a pet but rather embarrassing for a person. Everyone would be calling her Honey at school and the other children would be jealous of her being the teachers pet.

A lot of people use this name as a term of endearment, especially for a spouse. I have known a dog named Honey, but I have never actually met a person bearing this name. Depending on the bearer, it might be a nice name.

Personally, I think this is like calling your kid Baby or Sweetheart. I don't think it's very appropriate, I guess it's sort of cute, but when you get older it's a bit weird.

This is like calling your kid Babe, or Sweety. And wouldn't they feel just a little bit uncomfortable when they are older with people calling them Honey?

There was a Bond girl named Honey Ryder, who was played by Ursula Andress in Dr. No.

When I was in grade school, one of my principals bore this name.

I'm not sure what to think of this name; sure, it does imply sweetness, but I agree that it's like calling your child "Babe", "Sweetie", "Dearheart", "Sugarplum", "Bitsy-Pookums", or some other term of endearment (which are too intimate to be used as names and would earn the unfortunate bearer no end of verbal jabs). This girl will probably take a harsh attitude to live past the name.

My name is Honey and I really do love it. It's not at all common (at least where I live it isn't) and it's sweet sounding (for obvious reasons, lol). The only problem is that when I was a kid I got a little unwanted attention, but it was never really that bad at all. ; )

I wish this was my name so boys would call me Honey all the time! It's like you're already married! :-)
-- Taydbug112  3/14/2007
It's too cutesy-cute and I believe that nobody would take you seriously.

In the Trixie Belden books (a series about a kid detective who's curiousity got her and her friends into lots of scrapes) Trixie's best friend is named Honey. Everyone calls her this, mostly because of her Honey coloured hair and sweet personality, but her real name is Madeline. Honey was a girl born to rich parents who lived in a mansion with her adopted brother Jim.

We all love the substance, and it's a cute name, but only for pets. You can only imagine how bad the teasing would be today. In case the girl turns out grumpy, violent, and unattractive, this name will be quite hilarious on her. Of course, it would be very hard for a woman named Honey to be taken seriously, as people would assume she's a bimbo. Just the fact that she hasn't changed it would make people doubtful of her intelligence and competence. It's a nice term of endearment and an okay name for a pet, but quite cutesy and girly for an adult.

I think this is a sweet name. No pun intended. And I think if you gave a more serious middle name it would take off the cutesy-ness, but come on not everyone is going to be a lawyer, you can't plan the future. If you like this name name your child Honey.

Honey is the nickname for Haninosuka Mitsukuni (written in Eastern style) of the manga/anime Ouran High School Host Club.

British actress Kate Winslet named her daughter Mia Honey.

I used to find this name too immature and sugary to actually be someone's real name, but since then I have met a wonderful librarian named Honey.
-- YMPvt  8/31/2008
This woman will not be taken seriously.
-- bananarama  10/8/2008
I think Honey is rather cute as a middle name IF it holds significance. Otherwise, don't even bother.
-- Anonymous User  10/31/2008
It does sound a little too cutesy, but I kind of like it because Honey was the name of a lead character in a Canadian TV show from the late 1990s called "Wind At My Back". That Honey was a strong and determined woman, and she was my favourite character. Still, I don't think I'd use it as a first name. Maybe a middle name.
-- Katja32  11/12/2008
I wonder with Honey being a less common term of endearment in England that this has kept it "reasonably" usable as a name there. It's up quite high on the popularity chart.

Whoever names their baby 'Honey' is cruel!
-- diamondberries  11/26/2008
This sounds more like a nickname than a real name - I wouldn't choose a name like this for a daughter.
-- Anonymous User  12/8/2008
I don't think I'd ever give this name to a daughter - it's a good pet name, but definitely not a good given name!
-- Anonymous User  12/17/2008
What about all the "Honey, I'm home!" jokes? I imagine someone with this name becoming very bitter about it (bu-dum ch).
-- MoonAgeDaydreamer  12/22/2008
"Honey" is a 1968 song by Bobby Goldsboro.
-- FMRadio  12/27/2008
I only just discovered that Kate Winslet's Mia has Honey as her middle name. Where have I been?

Regardless of that, Honey isn't a common endearment in some countries at all. I believe that's why it's still being used in Britain. It's not rare. Combining it with a more down to earth first name is a good idea and Jamie Oliver's Poppy Honey doesn't cut the mustard despite Poppy being mainstream. Poppy is just too irredeemably sweet with Honey.

LOL. "Honey, I'm home!" Cute name though! :)

Norman Lindsay, the Australian artist, had a daughter named Helen, called Honey.

Also, I think Mia Honey (the name of Kate Winslet's daughter) is adorable, because Mia is "my" or "mine" in Spanish, so that's like naming her "my Honey".

This is used a bit in England. 251 born there in 2007 so used more that year than e.g Jenna and Catherine. I'd assume the parents were quite "upper-crust" rather than chavvy, although the sibling names would be telling.

Honey is a very American term of endearment to me. I'd never use it as a cutesy term or a name.

"Honey, I'm home!"

This is a better name for a pet, and is ridiculous on a person.

There's a movie with Jessica Alba named Honey. Her character in the movie is named Honey!
-- enchy  9/11/2009
I love this name, especially because of the movie with Jessica Alba. It's cute, but, IDK, it doesn't seem childish to me at all!

The English celebrity chef Jamie Oliver named his first daughter Poppy Honey.
-- Anonymous User  10/25/2009
I like Honey, though perhaps not as a first name. Honey as a middle name or even Miele [Italian word for Honey] in the middle would be... sweet.
-- vomiting  9/7/2010
I can't help but to associate this name with certain Milo Manara albums where the protagonist is nicknamed "Honey" for... [adult content] reasons.
-- Anonymous User  12/8/2010
It's so cute this name! Honey makes me feel like a girl who is laughable and energetic. With blonde hair and white dress with orange flip- flops.
-- tafflemark  1/26/2011
I would like Honey as a name, if it weren't such a widely-accepted term of endearment. This would be like naming your daughter Sweetheart as her legal name. Then again, I have come across people named Precious (which I think is worse than Honey). My grandma's dog was named Precious. Good dog... but I digress. Basically, Honey shouldn't be used as a legal name. Character? Go for it.
-- erb816  3/10/2011
I met a Honey. It's a cute name, but I also feel it is more a term of endearment.
-- blueeyesparkle  1/15/2013
Of course this is an adorable nickname or name for a dog, but as a legal name it's kind of ridiculous. Although I can see an old woman named Honey, which is definitely not something you can say about "precious" or "treasure".

Sounds silly as a name. I don't think it would be taken seriously.

Disgustingly tacky.

Dear god no._.

Wouldn't it be super awkward for teachers to have to address this student as Honey? Anyone who doesn't know the girl might think the teacher is a creep, or anyone else who has to talk to this girl.

In the movie 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?', there is a character called Honey.

My name is Honey. I'm well educated, highly respected in my field, I am married and I'm a mother. Yes, I received comments about my name all my life however... I can promise you that in a room full of people there is bound to be 10 Jens but there is only one Honey, which actually helps to get recognized among my peers. The best part about my name, is that people can't help but smile when they say it because it reminds them of someone they care about. I love my name..
-- faithindreaming  10/25/2013
My name is Honey and all my friends love my name, I'm not teased but everyone asks if it's my real name and it is. I don't have blonde hair but I do have Honey coulered skin, I know someone else called Honey too.

There is another Looney Tunes character called Honey. She is the girlfriend of Bosko.

I can't believe that 'Honey' is actually ranked at #207 over in England and Wales. Really? I thought you guys were supposed to be the smart ones. (Yes, USA has some bad names too, so won't deny that one)
It would be understandable if it was a foreign country, but Honey means the same thing to us; the food and the word of affection.

Definetly not a name you can take serious! If I hear someone calling out, 'Honey' or 'hey, Honey' I would think that they were simply using the word in an effectionate way.
