Last Name HARRIS


Meaning The son of Harry, this being the English attempt at pronouncing the French Henri. Thus Harry is not a nickname of Henry, but the English representative form. Hence the endless Harrisons, not Henrysons. All English kings were popularly known as Harry in their own times. The practice of styling them Henry is quite modern. The feminine Henrietta dates only from the Stuart period, while Harriot or Harriet was in use early enough to become a last name. The first Harry was born on English ground, and for that reason was more favourably regarded than the Conqueror's elder son. It is interesting to note that Hanry was a common early form of entry, being a kind of half-stage between French Henri and English Harry.
The son of Henry, which signifies rich lord.
The son of Henry.
