The term 'honeymoon' first originated in Babylon, about 4,000 years ago. Honeymoon came into use for the month after a wedding, when the bride's father would give the groom all the mead he wanted. Mead is actually a honey beer, and being so, the Babylon's calendar was a lunar calender, which is based off the moon. They then started to call that month, the 'honey month', which we now have adapted to be honeymoon (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Where_does_the_word_honeymoon_come_from)

"Honey" because it's sweet and "Moon" because it used to be the first time the husband got to see his wife's bottom!

There are two answers I know of....There once was an ancient Northern European custom in which newlyweds, for the first month of their married life, drank a daily cup of honeyed wine called mead. Hence HoneyedMoon...The other answer refers to the ancient practices of a groom kidnapping his bride to be and then hiding out for a period of time in order to let angry relatives calm down and stop searching. They called this period a honeymoon because it was a sweet month away from the chaos I think!
