Origin of the name Henry:

From the French Henri, from the German Heinrich, which is from the Old High German Haganrih (ruler of an enclosure), a compound name composed from the elements hag (an enclosure, a hedging-in) and rihhi (ruler), and from the Old High German Heimerich (home ruler), a compound name composed from the elements heim (home) and rik (ruler, king).

Personal experiences with the name Hendrix: | Edit

Everyone comments on how awesome and unique my son's name is.

I either get eye rolls or rock ons for my sons name. Though, the eye rolls did stop once he was old enough to share his own name.

I love this name whether it's associated with Jimmy Hendrix or not. I have a cousin who is named Henrix and is the cutest kid. I strongly suggest this name.
