look up any word, like sparkle pony:
 
1.
A greeting between friends, used like "hi" or "hey." Generally responded to with a repeat of "honig." Typically used in passing.

Originates from the MIT chapter of Tau Epsilon Phi where David Honig was a notoriously antisocial brother. In particular, he reacted with pronounced paranoia to hearing his name spoken. Accordingly, his name started being used as a regular greeting amoung brothers.
