Honore Name Meaning
French (Honoré): from a medieval personal name (Latin Honoratus ‘honored’). The name was borne by a 5th-century bishop of Arles and a 6th-century bishop of Amiens, both of whom became popular minor saints and contributed to the frequency of the name in the Middle Ages. The surname was taken to Denmark by French Huguenots who migrated there in the 17th century.
