HON

1. What is hon short for?

Honey

Hon is short for "honey," which is a term of affection SOs sometimes use for one another. When someone calls their partner hon, it means they think their partner is sweet (as honey, obvs).

Those who are in wub with their partner may also abbreviate honey as hun. Hon, hun, and honey are part of a tradition of cutesy couples talk that dates back centuries, with honey's first recorded use as a term of endearment appearing in the 14th century.

However, when used by someone who is not your significant other, hon may actually be a term of condescension. For example, those living in the Southern United States sometimes call especially stupid or naive people hon. In these instances, hon means "sweet but clueless."

Example

"Luv u hon! See u later!"
