German and Danish: from a pet form of the personal name Hans or Heinrich . This surname is also found in France (Alsace and Lorraine).
Dutch: from a pet form of the personal name Johannes (see John ) or Hendrick (see Henry ).
English: perhaps from an unrecorded Middle English personal name Henning, possibly a pet form of Old English Hēahnōth (from hēah ‘high, noble’ + nōth ‘daring’) by means of a short form Henn(a) + the hypocoristic suffix -ing.
