Very popular in Surrey!

I've got a Harrison but we've started calling him Harry, even though we said we wouldn't. Ooh, is it popular down south?

I know several Harry's but no Henry's.

I have a Henry and there's one more at nursery. And a Harry too.
Way more Harrys around than Henrys though which is a bit annoying if you have a Henry as everyone will mis-hear it as Harry.

One of mine has Henry as a middle name. I know a 6yo with the name too. No others here though (Herts).

Harry rather than Henry more popular at the moment. Know one (6mo) but hear the name bandied around a lot when out and about.

Many more Harrys than Henrys in my experience, also SE. But I'm sure Henry will increase in popularity - the Tudor effect!

I have a Harry, only 1 other in his whole school (another Mners son).
DN is Henry.

So not so popular in Lancashire

HUNDREDS of Harry's around this area at the moment.

Haven't heard of many Henry's though.

I'm just about North enough to be classed as The Midlands

My cousin, my brother and 2 of my friends have Harrys, also quite a few at ds's school so quite popular in East Midlands.
Only know one Henry though.

2 in my son's year at school (Juniors)

Mine is Henry! No others I know of in Wilts, people keep saying Harry though which I hate angry

My Henry is almost 12.

Did you know Prince Harry is actually christened Henry, Harry is the short version of Henry, (how it can be short I don't know but here you go)

Our Henry is just Hen, or Henners to his friends,

scattykatty Thu 03-Sep-09 19:11:12

I call mine Hens or Henzy blush

maxybrown Sat 05-Sep-09 11:15:54

Yes My Grandad was called James Henry but everyone always called him Harry! What??!!!

HerHonesty Sat 05-Sep-09 12:29:37

very. harry much more than henry.

Lilyloo Sat 05-Sep-09 12:35:39

My great grandad was called Hnery but everyone called him Harry , hence my ds is Harry as Lizzy said only 2 in the school so not popular here.
Don't know of many Henry's either.
