Etymology of the name HARRY.
Meaning of the baby name HARRY.

  

HARRY.  True English form of French Henri (q.v.), meaning "home ruler."  Usage: America, England, Ireland, Scotland.

... Its right native shape is Harry; the other form (Henry) is only an imitation of French spelling.  It was "Harry of Winchester" who cried out for help at Evesham; Harry of Bolingbroke who rode triumphant into London, and who died worn out in the Jerusalem chamber; Harry Hotspur whose spur was cold at Shrewsbury; and Harry of Windsor who foretold the exaltation of Harry Tudor when "Richmond was a little peevish boy." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
