About This Name: Honey is a relatively rare name — it is more often used as a nickname, a stage name or an endearment. However, there was a famous dog named Honey – Spuds Mackenzie. This English bull terrier was the “spokesdog” for Anheuser-Busch in the 1980s and was portrayed in commercials as a male. In reality, “he” was a girl dog named Honey Tree Evil Eye. There are few fictional human Honeys, but one that comes to mind is Honey Daniels in the movie Honey.
