Sounds similar to honorable

Yes the words are related as are the concepts. Dwelly 1911 actually gives both meanings for onarach although modern dictionaries often don't.

As evidence that the two concepts are related, not only does English use similar words, but so does German (ehrenwert ; ehrlich).

I am having a lot of trouble

With the various pronunciations of the same words, even after 218 days of gaelic. This sounds like oƱaduck to me.
