    Name Meaning

    English (southern): nickname from Middle English honi(e) ‘honey’ (Old English hunig), perhaps given to someone with a sweet nature, or for someone who kept bees or had a partiality for honey. The word was also commonly used in Middle English as a term of endearment with the sense ‘sweetheart’, which could be another source of the nickname.
