Name Meaning

This name has been translated as "home-ruler." One authority gives as equivalents a Gothic name Heinric, an Icelandic Heimrekr, the Middle High German names Chuniric, Cynric, Kunric, Henric, Kenrec, Hunerich, Hainreich, the Anglo-Saxon Henric and Cynric, and the New High German Heinrich. All these names are the same as the old Hunoricus, from "kunreich," meaning illustrious for strength. Henrietta is a name formed from Henry; nicknames are Hetty, Hettery, Harty, and Hatty. Henna is the Cornish form of Henrietta. Harry is a baptismal name derived from Henry. Henery comes from Henry. Eanraic and Eanrutg are Gaelic forms of Henry. Harriatt, Harriet, Harriett, Harriot, and Harriott are female names formed from Harry. Henriquieta is a female name derived from Enriquieta, the Spanish form of Harriet. Etta is a baptismal name derived from Henrietta. Enny is found as a female name, perhaps, like Henny, from Henrietta.
