Heinrich is a fundamental German name, that has become the basis for many, many off-shoot names in varied cultures. One of which is the all powerful, Henry!

Heinrich (pronounced HIGH-n-rik) was the name given to a number of German Kings, it is composed of root words:

heim

Home

ric

Ruler

This is where the obvious meaning of ‘Home Ruler’ comes from.

As mentioned earlier, Heinrich bore many fantastic and robust names; these include Henry (of course), Henrion, Hank, Henning and Harry.

Heinrich reminds me of other strong names: Georgiou, Eric and Augustus.
