Honor History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Irish surname Honor was, in most instances, an Anglicization of the Irish Gaelic O hEoghanain; however, it is also thought to have derived from O hUaithnin, sharing the same origin as Honeen, and O'Huonyn.

Early Origins of the Honor family


The surname Honor was first found in the ancient territory of Thomond (Irish: Tuadh Mumhan), literally North Thomond, the pre-Norman Kingdom of Thomond, since divided between counties Limerick, Tipperary and Clare.

The Honor Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Nec timeo nec sperno
Motto Translation: I neither fear nor despise.
