My dictionary defines "honour" as:  "A reputation for high standards of
conduct.
Glory, fame, credit, a privilige..."  that sounds to me like something that
is gained,
or perhaps a more suitable word would be <baj> "earn".

Since I do not know of any Kingon words for "reputation", "fame" or even
"glory"
I decided that <quv> "honour" was the right word.

So that would leave me with <quv vIbajmeH jIQojchu'>, could that work?
