Generally known as a Liverpool Kiss, it is just a headbutt, usually aimed at the top of the nose. There is no "pretend kiss" involved.

It is sometimes referred to as a Glaswegian Kiss (from Glasgow), or a Geordie Kiss (from Newcastle), but usually only by natives of those towns wanting to make their town sound tough by claiming credit for inventing the headbutt.
