Would you please tell me what does "Hon" mean? Is it a proper name or an abbreviation of "honey"?
“Listen! Look at me. Do you notice anything different?”
“Sure I notice, Hon.”

Thanks a lot,
Most likely an abbreviation of 'Honey' as an affectionate name.
It is unlikely to be a Proper name, or even an abbreviation of a proper name, but this would depend on the context. Is there a person called 'Hon' or 'Honey'?
But why then is it in capital letters? If you say "honey" or "darling" do you usually capitalize the word?
Normally I'd agree with you about capitalisation. But, in this instance I can only imagine it is to place significance and importance on the 'pet name'.
eg. Similar to 'god' or 'God'. First means any 'god' - second means THE God.
or 'sir' and 'Sir' - denoting importance of the subject.
