It's unfamiliar to me. Only because where I live, nobody uses this spelling, I prefer Honor.
I like it, although this is also the British spelling of "honor".
Looks very weird, but it's incredibly pretty, but I do prefer Honor. Only people in the U.K. spell it like this!
I prefer this spelling.
This name can also be MASCULINE, making this name UNISEX.
It was given as a name to 11 boys in the USA in 2016
This is a ridiculous name. While I know that the word "Honour" nowadays has a meaning not necessarily attached to sexuality (to most people at least), this does seem like a name that parents who place too much value on their daughter's virginity would use. Also, this reminds me of Honour killings.
Ridiculous name.
Very weird. Annora is a better alternative. It looks slightly better than the Honor spelling though.
Honour me? Thank you very much. Yikes!
Goodness gracious, quite a serious and touchy complex associated with purity and virginity going on here. Don't know where that came from. OK, let's stop tarring and feathering the Puritans here and think about this logically and rationally. There's no need to lose our heads over this.

This has to do with morals and right and wrong and 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.

Lastly, I wouldn't let any association with "honour killings" ruin a perfectly good name. If we applied that to every word used by or associated with Muslims, there would be a lot of ousted words.
A small correction: so-called honour crimes are certainly not unique to Muslim communities.
I agree with slight night shiver and bananarama. You only need to look at female Puritan virtue names to know exactly what was expected of women. Such examples are 'Honour', 'Modesty', 'Obedience', 'Purity', 'Virtue', 'Silence', etc. More ancient examples are 'Fly-Fornication' and 'Abstinence'. I am glad those aren't used today!

Anyway, I don't think Honour sounds nice in any accent. I understand it has other meanings, but in terms of Puritans, virtues and religions, it refers to a woman's reputation for being a virgin, which isn't a good association anyway.
I wouldn't use this name, because it reminds me of so-called honour killings.
What does Honour (the name or the virtue) have to do with sex? The above comments are just ridiculous. Number one, Puritans wanted their daughters to make respectable marriages in which they could be blessed with children. Yes, they only approved of sex within the confines of marriage, but that was standard for the time. Also, to be honourable is not synonimous with being virginal. All that being said, I think it is a lovely name.
No matter how you spell it, Honor/Honour is a crappy name that shows the parents are sexist and want their daughter to remain a virgin or else she'll ruin the family name, not to mention the name of the "wonderful" man who raped her!
This is one of my favorite girls' names. I live in the US, but prefer Honour to Honor. I'd call her Nora to get away from that "on her" thing. I hate it when horrible nicknames ruin lovely names!
Come on, people. I think we all know what the Puritans' definition of 'honor' was, at least when it came to females. This is the sort of name people who wished their daughter would never have sex used to choose for their daughter, and the negative legacy still lives on. The name isn't particularly pretty anyway, in fact, it's quite ugly. It's also pompous. However, it doesn't really sound that much like ''on her'' if you really strecth the first syllable like many Americans do, so it's ''AAAAH-ner'' rather than ''ON-er''. Of course, you probably wouldn't do that in British English, and you wouldn't bother with this spelling if you wanted the American version.
Not exactly famous, but there was a character in the television series "Kingdom" named Honour O'Sullivan.
I think it is a beautiful name but the girl would definitely get teased because Honour sounds like "on her". (Did you get on her? Everyone got on her cause she's a slut!)
In the United States we spell it "Honor". (Note without the extra "u".)
That is one very cool name!
I really like this name. I do think the variant Annora is more elegant and "user-friendly" though.
