Henry Given Name Meaning & History
GENDER: Masculine, USAGE: English, PRONOUNCED: HEN-ree. From the Germanic name Heimirich which meant “home ruler”, composed of the elements heim “home” and ric “power, ruler”. It was later commonly spelled Heinrich, with the spelling altered due to the influence of other Germanic names like Haganrich, in which the first element is hagan “enclosure”. Heinrich was popular among continental royalty, being the name of seven German kings, starting with the 10th-century Henry I the Fowler, and four French kings. In France, it was rendered Henri from the Latin form Henricus. The Normans introduced the French form to England, and it was subsequently used by eight kings, ending with the infamous Henry VIII in the 16th century. During the Middle Ages, it was generally rendered as Harry or Herry in English pronunciation. Notable bearers include arctic naval explorer Henry Hudson (1570-1611), British novelist Henry James (1843-1916), and American automobile manufacturer Henry Ford (1863-1947).
Considered powerful and traditional in Britain, and independent and folksy in the US, Henry is a timeless boy’s name that has both substance and style. Long embraced by monarchs, including the first eight kings of England, the regal name is also popular with Hollywood royalty and rock stars. — This name derives from the Old High German name “Haimirich”, composed of two elements “*haimaz” (home, house) plus “*rīkijaz” (kingly, royal, noble, mighty, distinguished, powerful, rich). The name means “ruler of the home, sovereign of the homeland”. Harry, its English short form, was considered the “spoken form” of Henry in medieval England. Most English kings named Henry were called Harry. At one time the name was so popular for English men that the phrase “Tom, Dick, and Harry” was used to refer to everyone. The most famous patron Henry II (Saint Henry), was Holy Roman Emperor from 1014 until his death in 1024. The last member of the Ottonian dynasty of Emperors, Henry II, succeeded to the German throne following the sudden death of his second-cousin Emperor Otto III in 1002. Henry was born on May 5, 972, the son of Duke Henry II, Duke of Bavaria, and Gisela of Burgundy.
