Hi, Foteini,

@Foteini posted:

hello!

could you tell me which one is correct? On their honour or in their honour?

thank you in advance 😊

'Honor' is written in American English without 'u'. There is a difference in meaning between 'on someone's honor' and 'in someone's honor'. See:

Also the Free Dictionary shows that 'on one's honor' is primarily heard in UK, Australia. See:
