A regal English name which goes all the way back to the 8th century. The roots of Henry are found in the old German name Heinrich, meaning 'home and 'ruler'. The meaning seems to hold true, because England alone has known eight kings with this handsome name. Curious little fact: originally, the nickname Harry was considered the actual correct pronunciation of the name written as Henry!
