Meaning & History

Derived from the late Latin “honor > honos-oris > honestus”, meaning “honest, gentleman, honorable, respectable”. Saint Honestus was, according to Christian tradition, a disciple of Saturninus of Toulouse and a native of Nîmes. Saturninus and Honestus evangelized in Spain, and Honestus was martyred at Pampeluna during the persecutions of Aurelian. Elaboration of this legend states that Honestus was a nobleman of Nîmes who was appointed "apostle to Navarre and the Basque Country."
