Is there more than one type of honest?
Yes. Compare the two statements below, as they may be said to an intimate partner:

“We should try to eat healthier and get more exercise”

“You have bloated to the size of a dead hippopotamus”

Different levels of honesty.

I would say both are still honest, surely honesty is like pregnancy, you can’t be half honest or half pregnant.

Nope you can't, but you can sugarcoat the honesty, at least for ones own salvation.
True, but it can still only be honest (true) or dishonest (false) even with sugarcoating.

Some people tend to stray into a white lie aka dishonesty not to upset peoples feelings .
