There are several varieties with"path" as part of a name.  Likewise with "honorable."  In addition to Honorabile, there is one that is named Honorable, but probably is not in circulation.  There is very little chance what you have is this latter one.  There is at least one other possiblity the name of which I don't recall exactly, but it had two words, one of which was "Honorable."
If you know anything about these two--how big the plants are, whether they have purple coloring on the base of the fan of leaves, or if you know the color of the flower--all of these would help us to make sure you have the right information.
My guess is that you have been given these.  The person who gave them may be able to describe how tall, what color and so on. 
One of the possibilities for "path" is Pathfinder.  It is an older iris, but not as far back as Mary Geddes, for example.  Honorabile is a small flowered, very bright yellow in the standards, patterned red with lines, veins and a little shading of almost red over white and yellow ground.  It is a perky little thing and full of good vibes, grows like a weed and has been around over a century.  It has purple leaf bases too.  If this does not describe what you have, give us all the information you can and we'll take another try.
There are several other named irises with "path" as part of their name.
