"Henry" is from the Germanic name Heimirich, which means "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".
