1 Definition
  1. a "hon" is a Maryland-wide term of endearment for any woman of childbearing age, especially older women in the 50+ age group. It is derived from the term of endearment "honey." In Baltimore, and particularly in the neighborhood of Hampden, the word hon is liberally used. Most often usage is in restaurants and stores to refer to female employees, but could be used on the street when talking informally with a woman that the person does not know.
