Comments for HONOR:

I know a girl with this name. Although she is English, she spells it without the 'u'. It's quite nice.

I like this name a lot. I think it also sounds good for a boy.

Horrible name for girls. It seems better on guys.

An extremely famous bearer of this name is Honor Blackman, a British actress who played Cathy Gale in The Avengers, a British TV show which had its peak in the 60's during the reign of Cathy Gale, and later Emma Peel (Dame Diana Rigg). Honor Blackman went on to play Pussy Galore in the James Bond movie Goldfinger.

When I suggested this name to my husband, he gave me a cynical look and said, "Honor and off her." It's been hard for me to take this name seriously ever since.

It's quite a name to live up to, and something tells me girls have been named this because the parents have really wished she would stay a virgin for the rest of her life, or at least until she gets married at 36 and has a few kids, after which she stops having sex altogether. See, when this pompous and ugly name was still popular, or at least common, people didn't suffer from this psychosis that leads people to believe that women give birth to hideous freaks if they have children past the age of 30, but they did suffer from the psychosis that leads people to believe that virginity equals Honor. The name seems to be a relic of misogynous attitudes despite the lofty meaning.

Jessica Alba and her husband Cash Warren very recently welcomed a baby girl into their family - her name is Honor Marie Warren.

I hate this name. Using it implies that the parents wanted their daughter to think she'll have to be a virgin until she's married. While chastity is important, it's rude to expect a girl to ruin the family "Honor" if it happens. It is so sexist to think that your daughter will get away with being named Honor. That's why I think this is a terrible name to have.

"Honor of the working, comrades" was greeting in communist Czechoslovakia.

To me it just doesn't sound like a name. When I first heard it, I thought maybe it was because it was rather new, but it's not. Sometimes when a common word is used as a name, it sticks, like Grace or even Lyric, but not Honor.

I like this but I'm English so it would only feel right to spell it Honour even though this probably looks nicer.

This is my grandma's name. She was given it because she was born the day the war ended all the other girls born on that day were called Victoria but her mum wanted to name her something different so they picked Honor. I think it's a nice name really :)

I LOVE this name. I am going to totally name my daughter this! It is a beautiful VIRTUOUS name!

I like this name, but it's hard to pair a nice middle name that goes well with it because every time you use a name (ex. Honor Marie) it sounds like "Hey, Honor Marie right now!" And it would be cool if you named her Honor Mae, because, if said with the right accent, it's like you're saying "Honor me!" Hahaha! I crack myself up. :)

Goodness gracious, quite a serious and touchy complex associated with purity and virginity going on here. There's no need to lose our heads over this. This has to do with morals and right and wrong and somewhere deep down we all know that. That's the root of the frustration here. It's not about a family's wish for their daughter to "remain a virgin." It actually has quite a broad meaning. Go look it up.

It looks better without the u, as it makes it different from the word, even they are still related.

Honor Moore is an American writer.

This name makes me think of honor killings, which are reported way too much in Europe and are even starting to pop up here. Of course, this is due to the Islamophobia that is so prevalent among atheists. I'd rather think of something more pleasant.

I think this is one of the prettiest word names.

I didn't know the name Honor had anything to do with virginity or purity until reading some of the comments here. I just think of pretentious parents who want their kid to be a straight-A Honor roll student.

I've been reading the previous comments about this name, my name actually, saying it puts pressure on a girl to stay a virgin until she's married or something, I agree that would be wrong for a parent to do, but giving your child this name does not put this pressure on them. My parents named me Honor and when I looked up the name meaning it came up with "integrity, esteem and dignity" meaning that if (by your logic) you must be what your name means I should be confident and truthful and morally good, in no way does it suggest what your saying it does, and it upsets me that people think that's what my parents thought when naming me, because it's not. They thought "what's a pretty name that would be nice for a little girl, and maybe slightly unusual so she's not stuck with some plain name everyone knows." It's not put any pressure on me to keep my virginity but rather to be kind and truthful and to show integrity, which I think is a pretty good message right? No parent decides their child's name on the reason that they think it would make them keep their virginity, that's an absurd notion and as someone with the name I can tell you have never been pressured to do that because of my name. So if you're thinking of Honor as a child's name, use it knowing it does not mean what other comments are saying it does.

If you're in the US, use Honor. UK or other place with British spelling, use Honour. Please, let's keep it smart people!
