ivy194 Says:


As a nickname or a wild middle name. I can see Clara Honey, Beatrice Honey, Louisa Honey, Annabel Honey or Emilia Honey.
But not as a full name.
Just no.

ceruleanstardust Says:


I adore the idea of this for an unexpected middle name for a classic first name. I'm picturing Eliza Honey or Victoria Peaches or Alexandra Petal or Catherine Bluebell - that kind of thing - with their middle names as a nickname.

Shamra Says:


Honey is my mother's name.
Some funny things along with that are, she has red hair, she doesn't like honey at all, I and my younger brother are allergic too honey... I dislike being called Honey. When people do it I then call them by their mother's name.
I wanted to use her name with one of my middle names for a dude face dislikes it tho.

OceanSky Says:


Sounds perfectly fine to me, especially since Honey is a surname.

CJ Says:


Two of the most gorgeous children I have ever seen are named Honey.

zhenya Says:


I worked with a lady named Honey and everyone would just call her "Honey Boo Boo".

paulapuddephatt Says:


Not a name I can take seriously - should be a nickname or used for a pet

ashbee Says:


I had a math teacher named Honey in 3rd grade. I also think of Miss Honey from Matilda. This would be sweet in the middle.

RoddyThlayli Says:


Better than Sweetpea, Sugar or Precious, but I'd go with Melina, meaning honey, or a name that starts with hon- if you like the sound.

Zelliew Says:


Yes! It sounds very informal & just TOO sweet

Guest Says:


I think it's a cute name anyway but at the same time a bit "stripper"ish. But I don't hate it.

Zoey_Artemisia Says:


I agree with Nameberry on this one.

Imnotputtingmynameonline Says:


For a nick name.

l_cotton Says:


I think it might work as a middle name. I grew up with a Honey and she was as sweet as her name, but it could come off a little weak as a first name, imagine it at the top of a resumé. If it is used as a middle name, the child can choose whether or not they want to be referred to as Honey or just go by their first name.

An alternative is naming your daughter any other Hon- name and giving her the nickname Honey.

I have fallen in love with Honeysuckle! I don't know if I would ever actually use it but I think it is absolutely darling.

Guest Says:


Too informal, "hi honey" gets said so much they'd need a new pet name.

Nooshi Says:


Melody is lovely too.

Sorceress Says:


I like it too, but I would rather chose Melody than Honey.

Nooshi Says:


I absolutely love Honey, it is one of my favourite names and I really don't like names like Sugar, Princess or Precious. I know a Honey who is now a lawyer, and it reminds me of the lovely Miss. Honey from Matilda.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


I... sort of... like this. Maybe for a character, of course.

CocoWhite Says:


Still better than naming your kid Sugar or Princess.
