Harry

Harry Lauder

Harry (m) The pet form of Henry, representing the
earlier (French) pronunciation of that name. Harry became popular as an independent name in England and Wales at the end of the nineteenth century, eventually going out of favour around 1930. It seems to have come to Scotland much later, reaching a minor peak of popularity in the 1950’s. It is now out of fashion. The feminine form is Harriet (pet forms Hatty, Harty) which was most used in Scotland in the nineteenth century.
